UPCOMING EVENTS

German Resistance to the Nazis
STAJE Seminar for Teachers in Jewish Schools

Date: May 15, 2016
Time: 12:30 P.M. – 5:00 P.M.
Fee: Free of charge but advance registration is required
To register: Call 646.437.4310 or email pradensky@mjhnyc.org

German resistance to the Nazis came from across the spectrum of German society, from clergy, politicians, aristocracy, the armed services, and even the non-Jewish wives of Jewish husbands who were to be deported. Join scholars Gerhard Weinberg (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill), Peter Hoffmann (McGill University) and Waitman Beorn (Holocaust Museum of Virginia) as we explore the history of German resistance to the Nazis and take a closer look at two fascinating examples: the case of German conservative politician and economist, Carl Friedrich Goerdeler, and an intriguing case of resistance in the Wehrmacht (German army).

This teacher seminar is free of charge, however space is limited and advance registration is required. A light lunch for teachers will be available at 11:45 A.M. (dietary laws observed).

To register or for more information, please contact Dr. Paul Radensky at pradensky@mjhnyc.org or call 646.437.4310.
