Speaker: Dr. Amy Weiss
Date: Monday, September 18, 4:15pm
Location: Drew University, The Dorothy Young Center for the Arts, Room 106
This talk examines the American Christian Palestine Committee's belief that it, as a Christian organization, needed to atone for the crimes committed by the Germans and their allies after the Holocaust. Although geographically removed from the physical devastation of World War II and not responsible for the tragic deaths of six million Jews, these liberal Protestants participated in and experienced a theological crisis in the wake of the Holocaust.
