"Through the Lens of the Holocaust:
Theodicy and the Problem of Evil"
Most people alive in this country understand the horror of the Holocaust and that it happened because the leadership of Germany in the years up to and during World War II considered Jews to be subhumans who were responsible for Germany's ills and needed to be exterminated. The country went along and the SS carried out the extermination of six million Jews. But, what if you had been a Jew, how could the Holocaust have challenged your faith, especially if you had lived through it? Would you have doubted God or decided there was no God? And, if you continued to believe in God, how would you have dealt with the problem called theodicy: that a supposedly, all-powerful good God, could allow such evil to exist in the world? The presentation will include Holocaust poetry and group discussion.
