Rabbi Leo Baeck was a visionary scholar, theologian, and leader of Germany’s Jewish community throughout the first half of the 20th century. After the Nazi rise to power, he represented the Jews of Germany during the increasing oppressive measures and deportations. He declined opportunities to save himself by emigrating and was deported to the Theresienstadt Ghetto in 1943. In Theresienstadt, he continued to serve his community under the gravest conditions until liberation in 1945.
FASPE honors Leo Baeck for his dedication to ethical imperatives in defending the Jews of Germany. In the face of personal risk, and ignoring opportunities to secure his own safety, he lived by the values distilled in his writings and survived by helping others, teaching, and maintaining his own dignity and protecting that of others.
