St. Paul, MN; October 23, 2023
World Without Genocide, in partnership with the Germanic-American Institute and Mount Zion Temple, will host an event to memorialize the 85th anniversary of Kristallnacht, nights of violence against Jews in Germany and Austria, November 9 and 10, 1938.
Rabbi Spilker will open the program with Kaddish, a memorial prayer for the dead, to honor those who perished in the Holocaust and in other catastrophes. This will be followed by a short readers' theater play, "Germans who Saved Jews during the Holocaust" and a talk by Dr. Andrew Port, author of “Never Again: Germans and Genocide after the Holocaust.” The program concludes with "The Line," a readers’ theatre dialogue between Nazi resister Sophie Scholl and Hitler's secretary. A dessert reception and book-signing with Dr. Port close the event.
This is a hybrid event, available as a webinar on Zoom or as an in-person event located at Mitchell Hamline School of Law, Conservatory and Great Room, 875 Summit Avenue, St. Paul, MN, 55105.
The event is open to the public: $10 general public; $5 students and seniors; $25 for two Continuing Legal Education credits for Minnesota lawyers; and free to Mitchell Hamline students. Diversity credits are available for Mitchell Hamline students and the event qualifies as a University of St. Thomas Law Mentor Externship experience.
