December 15, 2016 – 7:30-9p, – Jews in Mitteleuropa
Stories from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Starting with a four-minute film narrated by Sixty Minutes’ Morely Safer about the Jews in the Austro-Hungarian army, we will discuss Jewish loyalty to the Emperor. Then you will meet Heinrich Nussbaum, whose four sons fought in WWI. The empire collapsed and Europe divided, but Heinrich refused to believe in borders and sent his sons to universities in Prague, Berlin, Paris and Florence. And Ernst Galpert will tell you about growing up orthodox in Munkacs. The Holocaust ended his interest in religion – until Communism fell and he helped re-established Jewish life.More Info
