Location Zoom
Date Tue, Sep 19, 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Duration   1h

On the eve of the Holocaust there were hundreds of little Jewish towns (shtetls) in Europe. What was life in them like? During the Holocaust, each and every one of these shtetls was erased and their Jews murdered. How did this occur? Yad Vashem educator Shifra Waxman will explore the culture, life, and fate of the shtetl of Parczew as a microcosm to tell the broader story of the history and destiny of Eastern European Jewry.

This webinar connects to the Echoes & Reflections Prewar Jewish Life and Final Solution units.
