Lappin Foundation invites you to join us for an in-person film screening and discussion of From Swastika to Jim Crow at Temple Ner Tamid, 368 Lowell St. in Peabody, MA.

From Swastika to Jim Crow is the little-known story of Jewish scholars who fled to the United States from Nazi Germany. Confronted with American antisemitism and unable to find employment in major universities, a surprising number found an unexpected refuge teaching at historically Black colleges in the segregated South. The program is free, and everyone is welcome.  Register at LappinFoundation.org. For more information, contact Sharon Wyner at 978-565-4450 or email swyner@lappinfoundation.org.
