Panel Discussion - Erosion of Rights: From the Holocaust to the Present
This is a past event.
Monday, October 17, 2022 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Jewish Museum of Florida
301 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33199 United States
The program is presented in conjunction with Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich currently on view at JMOF-FIU. The traveling exhibition is about the rule of law and how one government - the Third Reich in Germany - systematically undermined fair and just law through humiliation, degradation, and legislation leading to the expulsions of Jewish lawyers and jurists from the legal profession.
As the rule of law comes under attack today in both developed and Third World countries, Lawyers Without Rights tragically portrays what can happen when the just rule of law disappears - replaced by an arbitrary rule by law that sweeps aside the rights and dignity of selected populations.
The story of the fate of Jewish lawyers in Berlin and all of Germany is more than a historical footnote; it is a wake-up call that a system of justice free of impoper political considerations remains fragile and should never be taken for granted.
