“Am I My Neighbor’s Keeper?
Dynamics of Moral Courage for Holocaust Rescuers”
Fern Ruth Levy, M.S., M.A.J.S.
Director and Founder of the Anne Frank Moral Courage Project of Cleveland

What motivated people to shift from being bystanders to becoming actively engaged in rescuing victims of the Holocaust? Learn about research on the bystander phenomenon and stories of Christian and Muslim Holocaust rescuers. What factors prompted them to intervene? Why did such people become the “Righteous among the Nations”? What can we learn from their stories to prevent future genocide? Honor Yom HaShoah and join in affirming the commitment: Never again.
