Defiance and Protest: Forgotten Acts of Individual Jewish Resistance in Nazi Germany

event_title

SPONSORED BY LAURAYNE RATNER

Please join the UC San Diego Jewish Studies Program and UC San Diego Library for a lecture by Wolf Gruner, the Shapell-Guerin Chair in Jewish Studies and professor of history at USC, on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 from 5–7 p.m. in the Seuss Room at Geisel Library. This event is free and open to the public. RSVP is required at https://hlhw-gruner.eventbrite.com.

In this talk, Gruner challenges the common misconception that Jews submitted passively to Nazi persecution. Drawing on various new sources such as the logbooks of Berlin police precincts, trial materials from various German cities, as well as video testimonies held in the USC Shoah Foundation Institute’s Visual History Archive, he demonstrates the prevalence of individual acts of resistance by German Jews from 1933 to 1945.

*Please note date change. This event was previously scheduled for March.
