JCF NY: Confronting Contemporary Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial through the Arts

Thursday, January 26, 2023, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EST

With the rise in antisemitism, the increase in Holocaust denial and distortion, and the appalling lack of knowledge of the Holocaust, it is imperative to honor the past, shape the present, and empower the future by all means possible. A leader on this critical issue, The Defiant Requiem Foundation promotes Holocaust education and remembrance uniquely focused on the story of Jewish prisoners at the Theresienstadt concentration camp, who courageously defied the Nazis with art and music.

Leading up to International Holocaust Remembrance Day, join us for a conversation with Ambassador Stuart E. Eizenstat, Board Chair of the Defiant Requiem Foundation, in conversation with Murry SidlinAlexandra Zapruder, and a Defiant Requiem Teaching Ambassador. Their conversation will focus on how music and art can serve as a catalyst to fight contemporary antisemitism and Holocaust denial, and how funders can make change on this critical issue.
