Identifying the Enemy: The 80th Anniversary of Anti-Jewish Laws in Germany

Sunday, September 20, 2015, 2:00 p.m.
Venue: JO 4.614

Professors Zsuzsanna Ozsváth, David Patterson and Nils Roemer will co-present a lecture on Identifying the Enemy: The 80th Anniversary of Anti-Jewish Laws in Germany. Eighty years ago, on September 15, 1935, the Third Reich reached a milestone in their war against the Jews. On that day, the Nazis passed the infamous Nuremberg Laws, which established the legal definition of a Jew. It was a decisive step in declaring the very existence of the Jews illegal, ultimately rendering everything done to the Jews under the Reich lawful. This panel will address not only the specifics of the Nuremberg Laws but also their implications for the relationship between law and the status of the human being.
