The hunger for heroism transformed a resourceful and brave Swedish businessman into a superhuman rescuer. However, many of the achievements attributed to him may not have taken place. Wallenberg was a less important figure to the Jews of Budapest than Dr. Lutz, the Swiss diplomat. The prevailing view in the first decades after the Holocaust was that the Jews of Europe “went to death like lemmings.” The glorification of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising implies that it was more honorable to die in the streets of Warsaw than in gas chambers of Treblinka, but survivors like Dr. Tanay, the instructor for this class, believe that it was more honorable to struggle to survive than to be killed in a futile effort to resist.Class meets Tuesdays, March 19 - April 2.
