The Full Scope of Jewish Anti-Nazi Resistance
and the Meaning of Courage in the Face of Hamas Fanaticism

Wednesday, April 3, 2024 – 9:00PM Eastern

In this unique and morale-boosting multi-media program, Dr. Jud Newborn presents the full scope of Jewish anti-Nazi resistance, providing accounts of Jewish heroism that will astound and inspire. Ranging from Western to Eastern Europe and North Africa, these remarkable stories demonstrate the true meaning of courage and the Jewish affirmation of life, despite all odds, as we face the fanatical nihilism of the Hamas October 7th attack, and strive to counter the troubling resurgence of antisemitism that has come in its wake.
