This coming week at the AC will be Holocaust Awareness Week. We will hold several events around the theme of the Holocaust. The purpose of these events has nothing to do with taking a side on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but simply to educate people about the genuine human tragedy that was the Holocaust. If you think that the Holocaust never happened or was not as bad as it seems, I especially hope that you will attend. Whatever you believe, it is important to keep an open mind and expose yourself to all the information before reaching a conclusion.
The events we have planned are:
Monday and Tuesday at 4PM: The conversation hours will be open forums on the Holocaust. What do you know about the Holocaust? Do you believe it really happened? How bad was it? Do you think the Holocaust was a hoax created to occupy Palestine? How do Tunisians view Hitler? These are some of the types of questions you can ask and discuss.
Wednesday at 4PM: Faiza Abdul Wahab, a Tunisian Muslim woman, will come to the AC to speak about her father, Khaled Abdul Wahab, a Tunisian hero who has been honored by several organizations for saving 24 Jewish Tunisians during the Nazi occupation of Tunisia
Thursday at 4PM: Moshe Gimlan, a Holocaust survivor, will speak to the AC virtually from the USA about his experience during the Holocaust. After speaking about his life, Moshe will take questions and comments from the audience. Moshe is a Jewish-American, originally from Poland.
Friday at 3PM: We will watch the Academy Award winning film, "Schindler's List", based on the true story of Oskar Schindler, a Nazi businessman who eventually ended up saving hundreds of Jews during the Holocaust.
This will be a great week, and we have some amazing speakers, so please come and don't miss this opportunity.
