Introduction to the Holocaust

This session will introduce participants to some of the significant factors that can help us understand how the Holocaust unfolded. Why were the Jewish people targeted by Hitler and his Nazi party? What led to the final decision to systematically destroy the European Jewry? These are some of the questions we will grapple with in this session.


This course is part of a joint initiative between WEA Sydney, the Sydney Jewish Museum and Shalom Theatre to celebrate Rosenbaum’s Rescue in September at the ARA Darling Quarter Theatre. Be inspired by the previously unknown heroism of the Danes. In 1943, Danish fishermen risked their own lives to send 7,500 Jews to Sweden. They saved roughly 90% of the Danish Jewish population. In 2001, as Denmark revises their immigration policy, two men are struggling to separate fact from fiction. This gripping play examines the malleability of truth, shared history, and how easily our memories can be altered.
