Don't Just Stand There: Holocaust Remembrance at Loyola

If you are a bystander and witness a crime, should intervention to prevent that crime be a legal obligation? Or is moral responsibility enough? Join us, Loyola's History Department, Sociology Department, and Peace Studies Program on Holocaust Remberance Day as we hear Amos Guiora discuss his new novel “The Crime of Complicity". Dr. Guiora will address these profound questions and the bystander-victim relationship from a deeply personal and legal perspective, focusing on the Holocaust and then exploring cases in contemporary society. He shares the experiences of his parents and grandparents during the Holocaust and examines sexual assault cases at Vanderbilt and Stanford and other crimes where bystanders chose not to intervene. 

Dr. Guiora will be speaking on these topics, the process of writing his 9th book, and time will also be given for audience questions. Free snacks and refreshments will be served. Dr. Guiora’s new novel will also be for sale.
