The unique role of Jewish women and mothers during this terrible time is often an opportunity to see powerful sparks of light in the overwhelming darkness that consumed humanity during the war. This presentation will focus on the unique struggles Jewish women faced, the moral dilemmas no person should ever have to experience, and the often heroic attempts many of these women made as they strove to maintain continuity and morality in a time of unprecedented rupture and immorality for themselves, their families and their communities.

Rabbi Moshe Cohn is the Head of the Jewish World Section in the International School for Holocaust Studies of Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. He is a dynamic educator with more than thirty five years of extensive experience in both formal and informal education. In Israel he pioneered creative educational experiences for post high school students, first as the founder of Torat Shraga Yeshiva, a GAP year boys learning program in Jerusalem, and then as Principal of Halichos Bais Yaakov Seminary for Girls. Prior to his making Aliyah in 2000, Rabbi Cohn served for almost twenty years as the Director of the Central Eastern and Southern Regions of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations.
