A lecture at the Museum of Jewish Heritage examines the relationship between Hollywood and Hitler during Hitler’s march to power in the 1930s, and the movies produced that either warned us of the coming horrors – or didn’t.
The lecture is in conjunction with the current exhibit, Against the Odds: American Jews and the Rescue of Europe’s Refugees, 1933-1941. The talk is by Thomas Doherty, author of the recent book Hollywood and Hitler: 1933-1939, and David Denby, the noted critic for The New Yorker magazine. The program is Wednesday, Jan. 8th at 7 p.m. The $15 ticket includes museum admission. Museum website
