Courage in the Face of Evil:
Standing Against Anti-Semitism, Racism, & Bigotry

From the Warsaw Ghetto, to the death camps at Sobibor, to the streets and back roads of Europe, many brave women and men resisted the rise of fascism and the terror of Nazi Germany. We must never forget.

As we pause to memorialize the victims of the Holocaust, we will lift up some of the unsung heroes who resisted Hitler. At a time of growing anti-Semitism and bigotry, we will also explore new ways of resistance.

Congregation Kol Ami welcomes you to hear our speaker Devin Burghart, President of the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights. He will speak as part of Friday evening shabbat worship to commemoration of Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Devin has researched, written, and organized on virtually all facets of contemporary white nationalism since 1992, and is internationally recognized for this effort. He is frequently quoted as an expert by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Philadelphia Enquirer, Arizona Republic, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, The Nation, and Rolling Stone. He has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, the CBS News and National Public Radio, and other broadcast media outlets.
