- Virtual Lecture “The Righteous Among the Nations: People Like You and Me?” Jan. 19
Free Register in advance by clicking here
Wednesday, Jan. 19
UT Dallas’ Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies presents Beate Judith Wenker, head of the education department at the Jewish Interactive Museum in Santiago, Chile. Wenker will explain, among other aspects, the socioeconomic diversity of the almost 28,000 people recognized as “Righteous Among the Nations” (a title granted to non-Jews who risked their lives to help persecuted Jews survive the Holocaust). Trying to answer the question of whether the rescuers were “ordinary” people, the lecture briefly examines a few studies that aim at understanding the Righteous’ psychological profiles, which could shed light on the origins of their courageous and determined behavior.
