Konrad Jarausch: “Jewish Lawyers in Germany, 1848–1938: The Disintegration of a Profession”
March 23, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This public lecture by Konrad Jarausch, the Lucy Professor of European Civilization in the Department of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will focus on the journey Jewish lawyers took to become prominent members of the German bar up to and through the Weimar period, as well as how the state and the bar then turned on those lawyers to drive them out of the profession and the country.
This event is in connection with the Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany under the Third Reich exhibit that the UNC School of Law is hosting.
