Community Discussion - Hitler's American Model
7:00 PM
Idaho Black History Museum
Description:
Community read and discussion featuring Rabbi Fink.

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.

Co-sponsored by the Idaho Black History Museum and Rediscovered Books.
