Speaker: Dr. Michael A. Meyer, Adolph S. Ochs Professor of Jewish History Emeritus at Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati and international president of the Leo Baeck Institute, a scholarly organization devoted to the historical study of German Jewry

Location: Temple Shalom; Chevy Chase, MD

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 deals 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
