The Crime of Complicity: The Bystander from the Holocaust to Today

Lecture and Book Signing featuring Professor Amos N. Guiora

If you are a bystander and witness a crime, should intervention to that crime be a legal obligation or is moral responsibility enough? This profoundly important question is at the heart of this talk as Professor Guiora examines the role of bystanders during the Holocaust, sharing examples of his own family’s experiences and drawing on a wide range of historical material and interviews. He examines the bystander during three distinct events: death marches, the German occupation of Holland, and the German occupation of Hungary. He explains that while the Third Reich created policy, its implementation was dependent on bystander non-intervention.

Drawing on lessons from the Holocaust, Guiora brings the issue into current perspective as he discusses cases in contemporary society, including sexual assault cases on campuses, as well as other crimes where bystanders chose whether or not to act, and the resulting consequences. He asserts that a society cannot rely on morals and compassion alone in determining our responsibility to help another in danger. It is ultimately a legal issue and we must make the obligation to intervene the law, and thus non-intervention a crime.
