In 2017, 13 drivers’ licenses that had been confiscated from Jews during Kristallnacht were discovered in a government office of a small German town. Following their discovery, the licenses were donated to a local high school as a research opportunity. In this compelling lecture and accompanying pop-up exhibition, Lisa Salko will recount how the high schoolers got in touch with her, and how she traveled to Germany to unveil a lost chapter of her family history. Lisa will be joined by David Gill, Consul General of Germany in New York, with remarks on behalf of the Consulate, as well as by Inge Stanton, daughter of one of the license holders.
A reception at 6 PM precedes this program, during which time visitors can browse a pop-up exhibition about the drivers’ licenses; the program starts at 7 PM.
