North Fork Reform Synagogue Presents
Social Justice and Lessons from the Holocaust
In February 1939, Congress refused to pass the Wagner Rogers Bill which would have allowed 20,000 Jewish children fleeing Nazi persecution to seek shelter in the United States. Anne Frank would have been rescued under this bill.
The intolerance against the refugees continues today against children from many countries trying to escape sexual slavery, rape, violence and death threats.
We will use the lessons from the Holocaust to examine today’s intersections of racism and refugeeism and explore how to promote tolerance and civil rights.
Presented by Beth Lilach, Senior Director of Education and Community Affairs at Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County
