Join Temple Beth El of Boca Raton for:
Shabbaton Morning of Learning featuring the film Killing Kasztner and Yad V’Shem’s Mordecai Paldiel on the tragic loss of Hungary’s Jews
What happens when a Jew saves only his family and a few others during the Holocaust and then comes to the defense of a Nazi after the war? Ultimately, he makes Aliyah after the war and in 1957 is assassinated. We will watch the film Killing Kasztner about all this and hear from Mordecai Paldiel, a survivor and head of the Righteous Gentiles department at Yad V’shem and a world famous Holocaust scholar. We will question whether he collaborated or acted honorably as best as circumstances warranted.
