Intersections of History: How the Nazis were Influenced by American Legal Policy
Learn about the intersections between the Nuremberg Laws in Nazi Germany and Jim Crow practices in the United States in this program. The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center’s Director of Education, Jodi Elowitz in dialogue with CEO, Sarah Weiss, will examine how the Nazis looked to discriminatory legal policies in the United States, including the Jim Crow Laws, as they constructed their own racial policies targeting Jews during the Holocaust. We will also explore how these histories of hate and oppression are linked and have lasting impacts that are still with us today.
