Duration   1h

Join the Institute of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Raritan Valley Community College online to view a timely documentary film, From Swastika to Jim Crow. This film tells the little-known story of Jewish professors and 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. The complex interactions between these two groups are recalled through historic footage and moving firsthand testimonials by Black and Jewish scholars, activists, and artists.
