Join Florida Atlantic University's Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education (CHHRE) for its 2020 Fall Virtual Event series. The second of two workshops, "From Swastika to Jim Crow" will highlight the journey of Jewish intellectuals who escaped Nazi Germany to the US in the 1930s.
The little-known story of Jewish intellectuals who escaped Nazi Germany to the US in the 1930s. Confronted with antisemitism at American universities and public distrust of foreigners, they secured teaching positions at traditionally black colleges in the then-segregated South.
