Jay Geller unravels the Holocaust’s enduring impact on our world

Jay Geller, the Samuel Rosenthal Professor of Judaic Studies in the Department of History at Case Western Reserve University, discussed how the Holocaust impacts our world nearly eight decades since it happened.

“The Holocaust is an event whose origins, course, and aftermath are worthy of historical study,” Geller explained, “but the antisemitism, anti-modernism and fascism that permitted the Holocaust also merit serious examination. They have dissipated, but they still exist in different forms and affect society.”
