Raoul Wallenberg and the Midwives

Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Memorial Day) occurs a few days after the end of Pesach. This activity relates to these two events by connecting the rescue of the Jewish children by the midwives in Egypt at the time of the Exodus to the extraordinary actions of Raoul Wallenberg at the time of the Holocaust.

Explore the concept of moral courage through an examination of the story of the midwives in Exodus and the lives of Holocaust rescuers
