Being a Jew in Nazi Germany: Nazi Oppression & the Jewish Response

Temple Shalom

Dates: Thursday, March 29, 2012
Time: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Speaker: Dr. Michael A. Meyer

Michael A. Meyer was born in Berlin, Germany and grew up in Los Angeles, where he received his B.A. (with highest honors) from UCLA. His doctorate is from Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati.

How did the Jews of Germany respond to the rise of Hitler, which put an end to their dreams of political equality in a liberal state and cultural integration into a civilized society? This lecture will deal with the radically changed circumstances and the remarkable moral resistance that rabbis and laity displayed in the face of ever increasing oppression.

Supported by Gary and Bernice Lebbin as part of a series on German-Jewish Cultural Heritage
