2. Jewish Obsession with the Holocaust
by Berkovits, Rabbi Yitzchak
Lecture is approx. 37 Minutes

A description of this lecture as written on Aish Audio:

This lecture is really very calming and helps to lessen the fright that many people harbor about this horrific event. What is the meaning to all the memorials, the reparation payments, and revisionists' counterclaims? And why do the youth, who often consider it just another historical event, have a vested interest to keep the lessons of the Holocaust close to their hearts?

3. Responses to the Holocaust
by Rabbi Ari Kahn
Lecture is approx. 45 Minutes

A description of this lecture as written on Aish Audio:

Many Jews continue to wonder 'how could God allow the Holocaust to happen to His chosen people?' Rabbi Kahn asks the following question: 'was the Holocaust a punishment because so many Jews assimilated, or because so many observant Jews did nothing to stem the tide of leaving the fold?' Explore some of the more plausible responses to this inexplicable event.

4. Why The Jews?
by Rabbi Raphael Shore
Lecture is approx. 68 Minutes

A description of this lecture as written on Aish Audio:

Why does this nation always end up being the scapegoat? Can it be that we are just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Rabbi Raphael Shore presents a perspective of antisemism that you most likely never heard in school. A very powerful class that is intelligent in its approach and inspirational in its message.

5. The Holocaust: Like Sheep to the Slaughter
by Rabbi Yaakov Weinberg Z"TL
Lecture is approx. 51 Minutes

A description of this lecture as written on Aish Audio:

Perhaps the metaphor of Jews going ‘like sheep to the slaughter' was just a big excuse that non-religious Zionists used to dismiss 2,000 years of Jewish history in order to embrace secular values? Rabbi Weinberg takes the stand that it is our responsibility to scrutinize this exaggerated canard rather than sheepishly accept the popular tale of a wimpy flock being led to its own destruction.
