Example workshops

The exclusion of the Jewish people in Germany:

“the entire national community becomes enlightened about the Jewish question; it learns that the national community is a community of blood; for the first time it understands race thinking and, instead of an overly theoretical approach to the Jewish question, it is confronted with a concrete solution.”
(Achim Gercke, the specialist for race research at the Ministry of the Interior)

The Nirenberg lows are known, but in Germany there was more than 2000  anti- Jewish lows were legislated and many of them meant to deflect the daily life of the Jewish people and their relations with the non-Jewish German people. Through learning and getting to know those rules, we’ll learn about the lows influence on the Jewish community and how they implement the racist perceptions among the non-Jewish people in Germany.

Leadership in decision junctions:

“Among those managers that doing their work faithfully, with dedication, from a sincere collective devotion, there are others, which don’t have the same morality”
(I.Klogman, Lodz ghetto, 1943)

The Jewish leadership during the holocaust were faced with unprecedentedly dilemmas and decisions in the human history.  In this workshop we’ll get to know the different reactions of the Jewish leadership in different locations. We’ll examine the Jewish people attitude to the ones who seated informal nor un-formal leadership position and we’ll cope with moral and ethical questions about the essence of leadership and the whey it was expressed during the holocaust.
