My very first talk was on Yom Hashoah ten years ago, April 10, 2010, organized by MIT Hillel at the Boston Holocaust Memorial. It was a painful experience, but immediately afterwards I was encouraged by the audience to “Keep doing this!”, and today, 10 years later, this is my 260th talk. It was organized by Seattle’s Holocaust Center for Humanity as part of its Yom Hashoah commemoration. Of necessity it, was presented online via video Zoom because of the currently ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. On the other hand, being online made it much easier to attend than a physical event, and the Zoom tally showed an audience of 500+.
