In honor of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), this post-show talkback will focus on how Anti-Semitism has reared its head in the past and in our contemporary world. We'll look at warning signs, how to recognize prejudice in our own midst, and think through ways that we can be more than mere bystanders to history, but "upstanders" who are willing to speak up and speak out against injustice. Relatedly, we'll look at the lives of individuals - like Dr. Ruth - who've survived anti-Semitism and whose lives have positively impacted the world.
