Date Sun, Aug 7, 5:00pm - 6:00pm
Duration   1h

Please join the Emil A. & Jenny Fish Center for Holocaust Studies at Yeshiva University for a fascinating lecture by Dr. Josh Karlip on Tisha B’Av (the 9th of Av, the fast day commemorating the anniversary of the destruction of both the First and Second Temples of Jerusalem).

This year will mark the 80th anniversary of a key point in the chronology of the Holocaust – the day when the systematic destruction of Warsaw Jewry began, the largest Jewish community in Europe till that point.

Between Erev Tisha B'Av and Yom Kippur 1942, the Nazis shipped nearly 300,000 Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto to Treblinka, where they were immediately gassed. The Great Deportation, with its annihilation of Warsaw Jewry over a two-month period, symbolizes the Holocaust at the height of its powers and the depths of its evil. On the eightieth anniversary of the beginning of the Great Deportation, they will honor the memory of those murdered by discussing their decisions and reactions during those horrific weeks.
