Rhetoric and Hate: What the Holocaust Should Have Taught Us

Description

Free and open to the public. The panel will explore the legacy of Kristallnacht, the "Night of Broken Glass" pogrom against the Jews in Germany, eighty years later and how historical knowledge of what happened then can help us better understand and respond to recent anti-Semitic attacks like the mass shooting at the Tree of Life congregation in Pittsburgh.

Panel: Mike Wolf, professor and dhair of the Department of Political Science; Ann Livschiz, associate professor of history; Ben Eisbart, president, Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne; Wendy Soltz, executive director of the Indiana Jewish History Society
