Description

The Holocaust is perhaps the most important and devastating moment in recent history. Over six million Jewish people and six million Soviet citizens, and many others were the murdered by a genocidal regime between 1932 and 1945. More than 75 years later, incidents of antisemitism in the United States are on the rise. This three-part series examines the history of antisemitism (Sep 22 with Laura Zelle), the Holocaust (Oct 27 with Ethan Roberts), and the effort to historically document these events through artifacts and memorialization (Nov 17 with Jonathan Edelman).

Laura Zelle is Director of Holocaust Education at the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC), where she has been on staff since 2005. Laura oversees daily operations, writes grants, delivers curriculum, teaches workshops, creates educational resources, and arranges speakers and film screenings. In 2018, JCRC was awarded “President’s Community Partner Award” from Normandale Community College’s Campus Compact Minnesota. In 2019, Laura received the Leon and Sylvia Sorkin Jewish Communal Professional Achievement Award.

Organized and sponsored by Wisdom Ways Center for Spirituality in collaboration with the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC) and cosponsored by the Jay Phillips Center for Interreligious Studies at the University of St. Thomas.
