Holocaust Education Week

David Clark
November 02nd

Today (November 2, 2017) marks the beginning of Holocaust Education Week, a seven day period intended to focus attention on the intentional, systematic persecution and murder of six million Jews during World War II. 

The Rev. David Clark is a third-year student in the Ph.D. program at Wycliffe College. His research focuses on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s interpretation of the Old Testament during the Nazi period, including the implications for post-Holocaust Jewish-Christian relations. During the summer of 2017, as a Fellow with “Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics” (FASPE) he travelled to Germany and Poland to study the history of the Holocaust and to explore contemporary professional ethics.

In this week's blog post, David describes the experience - of analyzing the ethical failures of Christian leaders at the time - as "illuminating and challenging."
