Lessons from the Holocaust: History for Contemporary Learners
April 21, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - May 9, 2021 @ 2:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until April 30, 2021
What can we learn from the events leading up to and culminating in the Holocaust? How did the Nazis gain control of Germany and use their power to commit the greatest crime of the 20th century? What are our responsibilities as witnesses to this history?
Join a community of learners from across Minnesota and the Dakotas to explore these questions, and much more. This flexible 15-course program allows participants to choose which classes to attend.
