In a Jesuit School

By Richard Libowitz

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2006

Libowitz teaches about the Holocaust at Saint Joseph's University, a Jesuit school. Most of his students have a rudimentary knowledge of the Holocaust, but their knowledge of Judaism is virtually nonexistent, so his course includes material about the nature of Judaism and Jewish history. He believes it is a mistake to teach the Holocaust as just another historical event, but rather wants his students to feel it on a visceral level, to realize that we are all brothers and sisters with a responsibility that transcends generations, political borders, and religious confessions.
