Some 70 years after its horrors unfolded, the Holocaust still has stories to reveal and lessons to share.
The highly acclaimed international exhibit, “Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany under the Third Reich,” will be visiting Rhode Island throughout August and September, providing a portrait of the fate of Jewish lawyers in Germany — stories that speak to how the Nazis purged Jewish lawyers as one of the early steps in attacking the rule of law in their country.
The showing – which will be installed at Roger Williams University School of Law in Bristol during August, and the U.S. District Court in Providence during September – is co-sponsored by the two organizations, in conjunction with the American Bar Association and the Bundersrechtsanwaltkammer, the German Federal Bar. The exhibit has been shown in dozens of cities in the U.S., Germany and throughout the world.
