Just recently, in Southlake, Texas, a school district administrator advised teachers that if they have a book about the Holocaust in their classrooms, they should also offer students access to a book from an “opposing” perspective.
That this idea should find its way through the school district or even be suggested by a professional administrator is the canary in the coal mine.
With anti-Semitism on the rise in the United States and beyond, the importance of the future Capital District Holocaust Memorial can’t be overstated.
And it was the interfaith friendship between Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger of the Diocese of Albany and Dr. Michael Lozman that brought the memorial one step closer to reality on Aug. 20.
