Learn the History Behind the Holocaust at the Ocean County Library Toms River Branch

(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- When the threat of genocide ran rampant in Europe and around the globe during World War II, was American intervention adequate, or even possible? See the Holocaust in the context of the time during "Combatting Hate: America and the Holocaust" at the Ocean County Library Toms River Branch on Tuesday, May 7, 2024. The event begins at 6:30pm.

Many historians agree that forceful American rescue efforts might have saved lives but they differ over feasibility. Steps taken by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, his advisors and cabinet, and religious leaders were affected by the Great Depression, immigration opponents and the German American Bund including New Jersey’s Camp Nordland.

Professor Barbara Krasner, Juvenile and Young Adult author and Director of the Mercer County Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education Center at Mercer County Community College’s West Windsor campus, will lead this second presentation in OCL’s continuing “Combatting Hate” series.

The history, novel, and poetry writer holds a Ph.D. in Holocaust and Genocide Studies from Gratz College in Pennsylvania. She has introduced young adults and children to concepts such as politics and genocide in more than 40 books. Her juvenile books about Jewish and Russian immigrants, the impact of the 1918 flu epidemic and native nations of the Northeast, the Great Basin and Plateau and the Southwest are available at the Ocean County Library.
