Shoah or more widely known as the Holocaust in the Western world was an event that one must never forget. It also caused a mass exodus of people of the Jewish faith to their historic homeland and also to Latin America and to the different parts of the world. The new online exhibition as posted by Yad Vashem allows us to explore the narratives from our venues of COVID-19 pandemic mandated social separation.
The exhibition has historical and area studies aspects and that is why it is being posted for our colleagues to inform themselves about the following, “The testimonies of Holocaust survivors are filled with recollections of Jewish acts of kindness and solidarity. ” (source: https://www.yadvashem.org/yv/en/exhibitions/rescue-by-jews/index.asp#about)
In the world, we experience these acts of kindness everywhere from people of all nationalities. These happen all around us all the time and I wanted to appreciate my colleagues and administrators who have been incredibly supportive in these difficult times of Pandemic. Thank you, and enjoy the exhibition!
