Bystanders and Complicity in Nazi Germany and the Jim Crow South
Friday, February 23, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm
Location: UAB National Alumni Society House
Although different in many ways, the history of racism in Nazi Germany and the Jim Crow South during the 1930s illuminates some universal phenomena that manifested during these distinct historic periods.
This symposium brings together scholars, students, and community members to engage in meaningful dialogue on how, when, and why ordinary people supported, complied with, ignored, or resisted racist policies in two very different systems of targeted oppression and racial violence.
Co-sponsored by the UAB Institute for Human Rights, the US Holocaust Museum, and the AHEC.
