In 1939, the Cuban and United States governments turned away the St. Louis, a passenger liner carrying 937 people—almost all of them Jews fleeing Nazi Germany. Join us as we hear from Scott Miller, Director of Curatorial Affairs at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, who will discuss the Museum's ten-year project to uncover the fate of every passenger of the St. Louis and how access to Holocaust education has changed in the last 25 years. There will also be discussion of two special opportunities to travel to Washington, D.C., to mark the Museum's 25th anniversary.
This program (7:00-8:30) is co-presented by KAM Isaiah Israel, Congregation Rodfei Zedek, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Please RSVP by April 25 to Nicole Bela at [email protected] or 847.433.8099
