Rabbi Sacks on the Holocaust

Two thought provoking videos on faith after the Holocaust.

A project for Yom HaShoah in partnership with the Holocaust Educational Trust

The following two videos are from Rabbi Sacks' extensive video series where he shares his perspectives on some of the biggest spiritual and ethical questions posed by the Holocaust: Where was God? Where was Humanity? How has the Holocaust impacted my own faith? Where does one find hope in the Holocaust? Each set of videos is accompanied by guided questions to encourage further discussion, historical background, additional information, and transcripts.

Do you have faith in humanity after the Holocaust?

How has the Holocaust impacted your personal relationship with God?

Rabbi Sacks Holocaust No. 3

I have been reading Rabbi Sacks videos on the Holocaust . One of each day
I had tears in my eyes when I finsihed reading No. 3
Thank you for Rabbi Sacks and the other people who made this video series.
I have a question as a second generation white South Africa, I understand
apartheid was a heinous, system how are we going to teach the black people
to use it as a story as the Jews have used the Holocaust about the effects of prejudice, racism etc and no one of bitterness and anger. A people can choose to be a survivor as opposed to a victim Or is too early. Please help me

As a person in process of converting to Judaism via Sephardic Orthodox, I’m grateful to both AISH and Rabbi Sacks for the educational programs offered through both websites.

Your statement concerning being a Jew

Your statement is so overwhelmingly right and truthful in the light of biblical evidence that I wish I could have it in written form. Is it possible to let me have it?
It's a most precious testimony not only for Jews, but also for me as a non-Jewess in the light of my love for the Bible. Thank you so much!
