Galloway, N.J. - The courage of Danish citizens in resisting the Nazis and helping to save Jews fleeing the Holocaust will be highlighted in a lecture, “How to Remember? The Holocaust in a Righteous Country,” at Stockton University’s Manahawkin Instructional Site on Tuesday, Aug. 9, at 10 a.m.

Gail Hirsch Rosenthal, director of The Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at Stockton, and Michael Hayse, associate professor of Historical Studies, will share their insights and photographs from a recent trip to Denmark, including a village where Jews left by small fishing boats for Sweden. They will discuss how the lessons to be learned from Denmark during World War II apply today.
