Date Tue, Dec 12, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Duration   2h

Auschwitz is known to many as the definitive symbol of the Holocaust. However, the town of Oświęcim, Poland, in which the former Nazi killing center is located, has a rich Jewish history of its own that predates the camp. Before the war, Jews made up 60% of the town’s population. Today, there are no Jews living there. Please join us for a presentation with Auschwitz Jewish Center Foundation Scholar Maciek Zabierowski and Echoes & Reflections Facilitator Todd Hennessy for an introduction to "The Town Known as Auschwitz" and the significance of the Jewish Community of Oświęcim/Oshpitzin/Auschwitz before the Holocaust and today.

This webinar connects with the Studying the Holocaust unit on the Echoes & Reflections website.
