“Lawyers Without Rights:
Jewish Lawyers in Germany
under the Third Reich”

Tuesday, February 7, 2017
through March 11, 2017 pm

the Forum at the Law School
1117 Stanford NE

Jewish lawyers under the Third Reich were one of the first populations to be targeted by the regime. While a sizable group emigrated, others went into hiding, ended up in jail, or worked in concentration camps.The fate of those judges and lawyers are highlighted in this exhibit. 

The Law School is launching the exhibit
with a reception and a talk
Tuesday, February 7 from 5:00 – 6:30 pm
in the Forum at the Law School.

At 5:30 pm, Regents Professor Sherri Burr
will present,“Defining Others to
Justify Abolishing Legal and Human Rights:
Parallels between Jews in Nazi Germany and
Free Blacks in Colonial Virginia.”

Four hundred years of history reveal an ongoing
tendency of those who seize power with
evil intent to define groups as others, target them,
and systematically reduce or eliminate their
legal and human rights.
Burr posits that we must study
what happened to other groups in order to
avoid making the same mistakes now
and into the future.

The program is free and open to the public. 

This program has been approved by the New Mexico Minimum Continuing Legal Education Board for 1.0
General hours of credit. Free parking is available
in the Law School “L” parking lot.

“Lawyers Without Rights” will be available for viewing at the UNM Law School through March 11, 2017.

"The Jews of Albuquerque in the
Twentieth Century:
Building Community along the Rio Grande"

The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History
Through April 2, 2017

The organized Jewish community of Albuquerque has roots which go back over one hundred years. Though our community is one percent of the total population of the city, Jews have been leaders in business, law, medicine, as well as in the arts and inter-group relations. This exhibit will present highlights of the growth and development of the Albuquerque Jewish community in the context of events in our city and in the world during the twentieth century. The presentation will look at contributions made by many as well as present artifacts of Jewish life in home and synagogue.

"The Jews of Albuquerque in the Twentieth Century: Building Community along the Rio Grande" is a community history project that will be presented in the Keleher Gallery. The purpose of this exhibit is to demonstrate how Jews built community among themselves and in a larger and more diverse Albuquerque community. This exhibit will display photographs, artifacts, and Judaica and ritual celebratory Jewish life, among other items and feature speakers and performances of Jewish culture. 

Rabbi Paul Citrin worked to put this exhibit together.
