We are honored to host the to the national traveling exhibit, Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich, at our Downtown and Vista locations for the month of May. The exhibit was created by the American Bar Association and examines how the Nazi government in Germany used legislation, degradation, and humiliation to drive Jewish attorneys and judges out of the legal profession. This exhibit explains how the rights of Jewish legal professionals were whittled away, and tells the personal stories of twenty-five Jewish men and women that were practicing law in Berlin.
The exhibit will be on display from Wednesday, May 1st through Friday, May 31st. We are planning more events around the exhibit, and more information will be forthcoming in our Newsletter and on our Facebook and Twitter pages, so stay tuned!
