“The Good Nazi” A New Television
Documentary at CNU
Sunday, November 10, 2019 at 7 pm
in Gaines Theater
The event commemorates “Kristallnacht,“ (German for: “the night of broken glass” ) when across Germany on November 9-10, 1938, Jews and Jewish institutions were attacked and many destroyed by Nazi sympathizers. It is seen by some as the beginning of the systematic violence of the Holocaust that followed.
The film chronicles the search for evidence of a little-known rescue attempt of thousands of Jews by a Nazi officer in the midst of the Holocaust in Lithuania by CNU Aaron professor of Jewish Studies, , and a team of geoscientists. It’s a story of heroism and moral choices in the most immoral of circumstances, and the program will be followed by a panel discussion by Professor Anthony Santoro, Distinguished Professor of History, CNU, Dean Lori Underwood, College of Arts and Humanities, CNU and Professor Freund.
Program is free and open to the public but space is limited.
