Witness to the Holocaust: Learning from a Survivor

Ralph Franklin was born in 1928 in Schlochau, Germany. During Kristallnacht, November 9-10, 1938, Ralph's teacher told him to return home because he was prohibited from attending a public school. When he arrived home the Gestapo was arresting his father and uncle. They were sent to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
This educational program has been supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

"God's Monsters" with dr. esther j. hamori

Sunday, December 16 at 10:15am

In the biblical imagination, the heavens are teeming with life—and it isn’t all angels singing. God is surrounded by hybrid creatures, vengeful spirits, divine hitmen, and other bizarre figures who commit remarkably violent acts, all in God’s employ. Who are the monsters skulking through the Bible and what are they telling us about their God? Find out the answers in this Sunday Seminar with Dr. Esther J. Hamori, Professor of Hebrew Bible at Union Theological Seminary
