As Americans, we live in a society where there is a respect for the law, a way to challenge unjust laws, and a belief in the ability of the judicial system to ultimately right wrongs. But what if one lived in a society where the laws were unjust, where the legal system was unfair, and where there was no way to vindicate legal rights? That happened not only in Nazi Germany but also in Louisiana before the Civil War and even afterward. This fast-paced, multimedia presentation will explore the role of Jews who had to battle unjust laws in Nazi Germany, discuss Louisiana’s history of unjust, racist laws, and illuminate the unusual and unexpected connections between these disparate times and events.
