    Confronting Antisemitism and Racism

    May 11, 2020 @ 8:00 am - May 15, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

    “In 2017, I was taken aback when a national reporter covering an attack on the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial asked if that act of hate represented who and what it means to live in Boise. The memorial had been vandalized with racist and antisemitic language etched into its stone. As executive director of the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, the builder and home of the memorial, I knew our group had to both ask and answer that question. Yet it seemed to me that the best answer actually would lie in the community’s reaction. How would we respond when confronted by hate? It wasn’t a rhetorical question.” (Taken from “Standing Up to Hate,” Idaho Magazine)

    From the comfort of your home, participate in a week of online programming developed by the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights in partnership with the Horwitz-Wasserman Holocaust Memorial Plaza (Philadelphia) and the Nathan & Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center (Milwaukee) to examine the history of antisemitism and its rise today.
