Catholic School Educators Learn about Holocaust and Antisemitism

By: JTA

A group of 40 Catholic school educators traveled to Washington, DC, in late July as part of a program to learn more about the history of antisemitism and the Holocaust.

The Eileen Ludwig Greenland National Bearing Witness Summer Institute is a long-running program sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in partnership with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Catholic Educational Association, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, and Georgetown University’s Program for Jewish Civilization.

Over a five-day period, the program seeks to educate participants about the history of antisemitism, the Holocaust, and recent changes in Catholic-Jewish relations.

“Bearing Witness is a unique program in its partnership between the Catholic and Jewish communities and our joint commitment to changing the dynamic between our communities so that the past does not serve as a model for our future engagement,” Abraham H. Foxman, ADL national director, said in a statement.

“In working together to understand and teach the difficult history of antisemitism and the impact of this history on Catholic-Jewish relations historically and today, Bearing Witness is a powerful example of how we can work together to shape a better future,” Foxman said.

Since 1996, ADL’s Bearing Witness program has trained more than 1,700 Catholic school educators.

    I hope someone tells them that the Catholic Church is greatly responsible for the teachings of anti-Semitism and due to this foundation of hatred Hitler was able to convince people to destroy the Jews. In addition Martin Luther preached the destruction of the Jewish people and Hitler used his writings as proof that G-d wanted the Jews annihilated.

  3. Rabbi,
    The church knows and Catholics know.However they cannot forever blame themselves for this. They must move ahead and teach the children about the holocaust.

  4. Jay M. Ipson says:

    This kind of education is the most powerful tool to combat hate. In Lithuania the Catholic Church helped murder their Jewish Neighbors.

  5. Alex Keisch says:

    "Studying someone else's religion will teach you more of yours." Author, Qasim Rashid, A DIFFERENT KIND OF MUSLIM. You won't find a single "Morality Play" in the entire book.

  6. openid that is true, one has to also on guard that the roman catholic church is very deceitfull in its doctrine and is really the roman empire giving homage to the pope instead of ceasar under the guise of christianity.
