The Masada of Warsaw

  • By admin

In this talk Dr. Berkowitz will provide a sweeping analysis of the historic, symbolic and political significance of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising (April – May 1943). He will contrast this event with another well known historic parallel, the heroic last stand by Jews against the overwhelmingly superior military forces of Rome, the siege of Masada (73-74 CE). Dr. Berkowitz will underscore the legacy, inspiration and contemporaneous relevance of the “resistance”in both instances to the moral imperative of rising above fear and intimidation and pushing back against escalating Jew-hatred with the same courage, leadership, passion and defiance as the Ghetto fighters.
