About the course

We invite you to join us in the exploration of hidden figures of the Holocaust.
Various Jewish and non-Jewish individuals who are seldom discussed, although pivotal to the story of the Holocaust, will be recognized at the forefront of this course. They took various forms, and several notable figures even played significant roles in resisting the Nazi regime. These five sessions will bring a few of these lesser-known figures and their stories to light.

אודות הקורס

בקורס נכיר אנשים יהודים ולא יהודים שונים אשר היו חשובים ומהותיים בסיפור השואה, ואשר לא זכו להכרה עד עכשיו.
הדמויות לבשו צורות שונות, וכמה אנשים בולטים אף מילאו תפקידים משמעותיים בהתנגדות למשטר הנאצי. בחמשת המפגשים נביא לאור כמה מהדמויות הפחות מוכרות ונספר את סיפוריהם.

נושאי הקורס:
דמויות חשובות-
הקורבנות הנשכחים-
מצילים לא יהודיים-
קבוצות ההתנגדות-
עזרה בגטו-
גיבורים נסתרים-
