Between the 1760s and 1930s Jews made up less than 1% of the population of Germany, yet their impact was extraordinary.
Jewish intellectuals were prominent in the arts, sciences, and political movements producing individuals of enormous impact such as Mendelssohn, Marx, the Rothschilds, Einstein and more who were world changing in their ideas.
This course will examine some of great personalities and events from the rise of Prussia and German Unification to World War I and the Weimar Republic and sets them in the context of their time. Tragically when the fall of the vibrant and world changing Jewish community came, it was catastrophic.
Students will come away from this class with a greater understanding of Germany’s thriving Jewish population during this time and their lasting impact on our world.
The program will take place on Thursday, March 4, 11, 18, and 25 from 10:30-11:45 am ET. Sessions will be recorded and available for later viewing for all those who register.
