It is never OK to be a bystander

Today is Yom HaShoah – Holocaust Commemoration Day. Each year, we re-dedicate ourselves to never forgetting the lessons of this era.

We have learned that bigotry and hatred are not the ultimate problems - Silence is. Silence ignores the victim, validates the killer, and sanctions the act.

On this day, we celebrate those with the capacity to challenge the status quo.

Bringing this message to current day, AUJS conducted a daring social experiment on campuses across Australia. We staged scenes of racial vilification using actors to test whether students would stand up, or stand by.

We invite you to watch the film, see the results, and consider what would you do?

Bigotry...I thought I was speaking English...and furthermore...I fail to see why that comment is bigoted!

Did you mean plenty enough "evidence" or plenty enough bigotry? Because if you meant "bigotry" then you were expressing bigotry itself by your very statement!

I would have thought there was plenty enough bigotry and racism on university campii without having to stage an "experiment"!
