Art and Remembrance: The Legacy of Felix Nussbaum

A Film Screening

Erica Sigmon

Monday 11:15 AM–12:30 PM Hudson III


This film tells the story of Felix Nussbaum, the German-Jewish artist who, during four years of hiding in Brussels, created a major body of paintings about European Jews during World War II. One month before the liberation of Brussels, he was turned into the Gestapo and sent on the last transport to Auschwitz where he was murdered. Twenty-five years after the war, Nussbaum’s work was found. Nussbaum, whose art is now exhibited throughout the world, is recognized as one of the great artists of his time.

Racism in the Jewish Community

Aliza Hausman, Yehuda Hausman

Canceled, sorry

Identity & Responsibility

We will explore racism in the Jewish community on both the personal and community level. We will discuss stereotypes, anti-Semitism, relations with non-Jews and people of other races. We will look at the issues Jews of color encounter in the community. How does culture influence self-perception? How do our cultural perceptions affect others? How can talking and learning about racism help us work towards a more cohesive Jewish community? This session will use Jewish, anecdotal and popular sources.
