"Auschwitz" is one of the key issues for people searching for answers to existential and ethical challenges.
Orientation after Auschwitz comes first of all from the voices of the victims. In this workshop we want to take a look at two new fields of research concerning "faith in Auschwitz" in as well as Jewish and Christian experiences and perspectives.
The Amud Aish Memorial Museum in Brooklyn, New York (USA) is collecting Jewish orthodox testimonies of the Holocaust. The CEO Rabbi Sholom Friedmann will introduce them to us.
At the John Paul II Papal University in Krakow (Poland) Dr Joanna Barcik, the granddaughter of a survivor, is working on Polish Christian survivors' testimonies. She will speak about her findings.
We invite you to reflect with us on the relevance of the victims' testimonies of faith for our existential and ethical orientation and for Christian-Jewish dialogue.
Fr. Dr Manfred Deselaers from the Centre for Dialogue and Prayer in Oświęcim, Poland, will be moderating the meeting.
