Event description
WCGS welcomes Professor James Diamond, Chair of Jewish Studies at the University of Waterloo.

About this Event

During World War II, a group of poets, artists, and historians in the Warsaw Ghetto buried thousands of documents attesting to their suffering and resistance as Jews under Nazi rule. Among those recovered was a manuscript of weekly sermons delivered in the Ghetto by a Hasidic rabbi desperately trying to preserve his faith in the face of unimaginable loss and pain. It is a rare testament to one human being’s struggle with the incomprehensible evil of the Holocaust.

Presented in cooperation with the Department of Religious Studies and the Joseph and Wolf Lebovic Chair of Jewish Studies.

This is a free event open to all. An RSVP is not required to attend the event, but it will provide you with updates and it helps us to plan our event.
