Places of Remembrance: Legislation and Human Rights in the Third Reich and the U.S. Today

Date: 5:30pm - 7:30pm PDT April 23 Location: Oregon Jewish Museum, 724 NW Davis St

Oregon Jewish Museum, 724 NW Davis St

This presentation is based on the Holocaust memorial Places of Remembrance (Orte des Erinnerns) in Berlin, Germany, which displays over 90 anti-Semitic laws passed in Berlin between 1933 and 1945.

Participants will have an opportunity to consider the legislative and social processes, including the slow passage of dehumanizing laws, which led to an environment in which full-scale genocide could take place in Europe a short 70 years ago.

Through the interactive process of reading through the anti-semitic laws that were passed, we’ll engage in conversations about the possible reasons behind the legislation and the subsequent social effects. 

Participants will also examine how these processes compare and differ in the U.S. today, and what we can do now to stand against dehumanizing legislation.

About the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education

The Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education explores the legacy of the Jewish experience in Oregon and teaches the universal lessons of the Holocaust. Through exhibitions, programs, educational resources, and opportunities for intercultural conversation, OJMCHE challenges its visitors to resist indifference and discrimination and to envision a just and inclusive world. From its humble start as a “museum without walls” OJMCHE has become a vital part of Portland’s cultural landscape. Within their museum space in Northwest Portland, their exhibitions and programs celebrate and explore, in the broadest terms, Jewish contributions to world culture and ideas, issues of identity and the forces of prejudice.
