Places of Remembrance: A Participatory Discussion

Places of Remembrance is based on a Holocaust memorial in Berlin where over 90 antisemitic laws are displayed. Participants will have an opportunity to consider the legislative and social processes, including the slow passage of dehumanizing laws, that led to an environment of full-scale genocide under the Third Reich.

A concluding discussion will include a comparative look at U.S. governmental processes today and the importance for our own civic engagement under the threat of oppressive legislation.
