With Guest Speaker Laura Rosenzweig, author of Hollywood Spies
Join the HLC in commemorating November 9th, 1938, the night that a deliberate, coordinated and massive attack on Jews throughout the Germany began. After a brief memorial service led by Rabbi Segelman, hear from guest speaker Laura B. Rosenzweig as she tells the spellbinding story of how America was fighting Nazism in Hollywood. Rosenzweig’s book: Hollywood’s Spies: The Undercover Surveillance of Nazis in Los Angeles, chronicles the fight against Nazism in a domestic theater of operations before formal hostilities were even declared. She reveals the hitherto untold story of Jewish resistance to Nazi infiltration, not in Berlin or Warsaw but in Los Angeles during the 1930s, a time when Nazism, a distant rumble on the horizon for most Americans, was for tens of thousands of others a siren call to action.
