Teaching the Holocaust Ecumenically

By Joseph H. Levine

Eugene Borowitz, September 29, 1978

The author reflects upon his experience as a Jewish chaplain teaching a course on the Holocaust along with Protestant and Catholic colleagues at Carnegie-Mellon University. The Christian co-professors were very willing to discuss Christian culpability for the Holocaust, the author reports, but seemed less willing to discuss the state of Israel as a potential theological and geopolitical answer to the Holocaust.
