The Olympics and the Holocaust
|Date||Wed, Jul 21, 12:00pm - 1:00pm|
This upcoming Olympic Games provide an opportunity to connect Holocaust history with this momentous event. In 1936, Nazi Germany hosted the Summer Olympic Games, promoting an image of a strong and unified nation while attempting to hide the regime’s targeting of Jews and Roma. In this Echoes & Reflections webinar, delivered by Sheryl Ochayon Echoes & Reflections Director at Yad Vashem, they will tell stories of Nazi persecution against Jewish, homosexual, Sinti, and other athletes—as well as acts of individual resistance—during the 1936 Berlin Games.
