International Holocaust Remembrance Day: Live from Dubai

Emil Fish, a Holocaust survivor and founder of the Emil A. and Jenny Fish Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Yeshiva University (Dr. Shay Pilnik, director), will be sharing his testimony and his thoughts on Holocaust education at A Time to Remember, a cross-border event presented live from Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in partnership with the Crossroads of Civilization Museum. (Last April, Rabbi Dr. Ari Berman, President of Yeshiva University, joined Jewish and Arab leaders in Dubai for the first Yom HaShoah commemoration in an Arab country, marking the opening of a new exhibition at the Crossroads of Civilizations Museum that documents the atrocities of the Holocaust while also highlighting stories of Muslim courage during World War II.)

The event will be held on Thursday, Jan. 27, 2022, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. ET. (See the flyer below for more information.)
