Description

RSVP for the Leo Baeck Institute's Deutschlandjahr event in collaboration with Germany Week.


Join us for a lecture by Professor Kerry Wallach and a presentation on the 1938Projekt


Lessons from Weimar Germany

The young Weimar Republic in Germany faced significant challenges in the 1920’s and early 1930’s. While democracy in America has a much longer history, there are lessons to be learned from both the similarities and differences between Weimar Germany and the United States today. After short presentations about Jewish visibility and experiences during the Weimar Republic and in Nazi Germany, especially the ominous events of 1938, a panel will discuss what lessons might be drawn from the challenges to democratic institutions both then and now.


Light refreshments to be served.


This event is part of the Year of German-American Friendship, initiated by the German Federal Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut, and supported by the Federation of German Industries (BDI).
