4 What was the Holocaust? The Holocaust is the term used to describe the deliberate murder of 6.5 million Jewish people, disabled people, gay people and lesbians, black people, political opponents, Jehovah’s Witnesses and gypsies by Hitler’s Nazi Party during WW2. The term genocide means the deliberate target of a particular group of people with the intent to wipe out that group.

7 Who were the perpetrators?

8 Who were the bystanders? Bystander- Someone who stands by and lets a bad thing happen. Ordinary Germans who stood by and allowed Hitler to come to power. The leaders of other countries who did not challenge Hitler’s policies before he began the extermination of Jews and others. Citizens of countries like the UK who didn’t put pressure on their governments to challenge Hitler and his policies.

9 Am I a bystander? I stood by an watched as another student was called names and bullied for his sexuality. I did not speak up when I saw another ridiculed for their religious beliefs. I saw posts on Facebook telling others to hate, and I did not report or challenge these comments. I saw behaviour that I knew was wrong and felt too afraid to challenge it- what if I were the target next? I saw someone on the bus who was uncomfortable with the way that they were being treated and I pretended I had not noticed.

10 I refuse to be a bystander. Oskar Schindler, a member of the Nazi Party, refused to help in the Holocaust. He secretly saved the lives of over 1200 Jewish people, risking his own life and the lives of his family in doing so. Schindler spent his entire and wealth and savings on bribing Nazi party officials so that the Jews who worked in his factory could be saved. In 1963 he was named as ‘Righteous Amongst the Nations’ by the Israeli government. He is honoured at the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem, and is also buried in the city. The stones that you see on his grave are placed there by people to remember him.

11 I refuse to be a bystander. Zeyneba Hardaga was a Muslim woman, who along with her father and mother, hid Jews during the Holocaust in Yugoslavia. The Hardagas became the first Muslims to be recognised as Righteous Among the Nations, the official title that Israel bestows on non-Jews who took extraordinary risks to save Jews during the Holocaust. Many years later, during the Serbian war, the family were never forgotten by the local Jewish community and other Jewish people abroad and they, along with their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were eventually taken to safety in Israel.

12 I refuse to be a bystander. Lassana Bathilly, a Muslim from Mali, risked his life to help hide Jewish shoppers in a freezer when terrorists attacked the Kosher supermarket he worked in during the recent attacks in Paris. He then managed to escape and help the police rescue the hostages. He said ‘People are calling me a hero, and that is not true. I am myself, I am Lassana. Yes, I helped Jews get out. We’re brothers. It’s not that we’re Jewish or Christian or Muslims, we’re all in the same boat,”

13 I refuse to be a bystander. Recently in Australia, a coffee shop was attacked by an Islamic terrorist. This made ordinary Australian Muslims worried about their safety, especially when riding on public transport.
