GREAT JEWISH TRIALS: A FOUR-PART COURSE WITH RIVA GAMBERT
Did you know that the imagery described in the “blood libel” allegations of 13th century England have been used in attacks against 21st century Israel? Or that the stereotype of Jews heard in the prejudiced 1913 murder trial of Atlanta resident Leo Frank were leveled against Jewish Hollywood moguls in the 1930’s? And what was the reaction of some American Jewish leaders when Israeli Prime Minister Ben-Gurion decided to hold the 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann (one of the architects of the Final Solution) in Jerusalem? Co-sponsor: Cong. B’nai Shalom.
Wednesdays, October 18 & 25; November 1 & 8.
