A series of events this month seeks to educate the public on the lasting and localized impact of the Holocaust, by exploring the experience of survivors during the war and after liberation.
2019 Holocaust remembrance in San Antonio will focus on the spiritual, armed, intellectual, defensive and political forms of resistance under the Nazi regime.
The global tragedy was instigated by the Nazis during World War II and led to the genocide of 6 million Europeans of Jewish descent, and the persecution of millions of others, including Slavs, ethnic Poles, Romani people, mentally and physically disabled people, and homosexual men.
How do we talk about hate in our communities? What can we learn from Holocaust survivors' stories?
- Ellen Ollervidez, director of the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio
- Haley K. Holmes, programs manager for the San Antonio Public Library
- Varda Ratner, second generation Holocaust survivor
