Is It 1938 Again?
In 1938, German Nazi totalitarianism, under the charismatic and mad leadership of Adolf Hitler, began its march toward world conquest and the destruction of the Jews. In an act of willful blindness, Western democratic leaders chose to negotiate and appease Nazism. Many Jewish leaders also downplayed the danger by convincing themselves that Nazi ideology was merely for domestic political consumption. Seven years later, over 50 million people, including six million European Jews, were dead: victims of World War II.
“IS IT 1938 AGAIN?” is a project of the Center for Jewish Studies at Queens College, CUNY. The Center for Jewish Studies promotes Jewish knowledge, scholarship, and culture outside the formal classroom setting. It reaches out to the larger community through lectures, symposia, conferences, films, music, and theater performances. It also publishes and disseminates its programs to both scholars and the general community. These activities have made the Center for Jewish Studies at Queens College a major regional center for Jewish life and culture, attracting thousands of people to its programs each year.
