Community Discussion with Rabbi Fink - Hitler's American Model

Thursday, August 29, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Community read and discussion featuring Rabbi Fink

At the Black History Museum

Nazism triumphed in Germany during the high era of Jim Crow laws in the United States. Did the American regime of racial oppression in any way inspire the Nazis? The unsettling answer is yes. In Hitler's American Model, James Whitman presents a detailed investigation of the American impact on the notorious Nuremberg Laws, the centerpiece anti-Jewish legislation of the Nazi regime. Both American citizenship and antimiscegenation laws proved directly relevant to the two principal Nuremberg Laws--the Citizenship Law and the Blood Law.
