Guided Tour of St. Louis Holocaust Museum is Sisterhood’s First Event of 2020

On Sunday afternoon, January 19, members of the NHBZ Sisterhood participated in a special guided tour of the Museum and Learning Center. Chaired by Margo Tzadok and led by docent Devy Goldenberg, those attending were able to deepen their understanding of the timeline of events and the personal accounts of Jews during the Holocaust. The tour concluded with a hauntingly moving account by survivor Rachel Miller.

Survivor Rachel Miller describes how her childhood in France erupted into unimaginable loss and horror, and eventually survival.

Indifference is the Epitome of Evil

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference between life and death.”—Elie Wiesel (US News & World Report, Oct. 27, 1986)
