Amos N. Guiora | The Crime of Complicity: the Bystander in the Holocaust

This event is presented by Salt Lake Indivisible and is free and open to the public. It will take place at Wasatch Presbyterian Church, 1626 South 1700 East, Salt Lake City.

Join Amos N. Guiora for a reading and signing of his nonfiction book, The Crime of Complicity: the Bystander in the Holocaust.

Complicity is a ground-breaking examination of the legal culpability of the bystander told through the lens of the author's family experiences in the Holocaust. It provides an exploration of three distinct events: the death marches; the German occupation of Holland; and the German occupation of Hungary, all of which allow an in-depth discussion of the role of the bystander in varied circumstances. Through a narrative of his parents' stories, Amos Guiora, Professor of Law at the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah, author, and former Lieutenant Colonel in the Israel Defense Force, poses the question of whether there can and should be legal liability in deciding not to act to aid another person in distress. It draws upon a wide range of historical, psychological, sociological and archival material in an effort to determine the legal and moral responsibility of the bystander. 

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of The Crime of Complicity: the Bystander in the Holocaust from The King's English.
