30th Belin Lecture: “It Can Happen Here”: Antisemitism, Gender, and the American Past

Pamela Nadell, American University
Tuesday, November 10, 2020
7:00-8:00 PM
Off Campus Location
30th David W. Belin Lecture in American Jewish Affairs
In 1942, an anonymous “Jewess,” looking across the ocean, wrote “It Can Happen Here.” Her cri de coeur, published in a New York women’s magazine, pled with its readers to bring to an end to the “ever-increasing prejudice” she and her family faced. With antisemitism rising today at home and abroad, American University Professor Pamela Nadell, author of the award-winning America’s Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today, discusses American Jewish women in the past facing antisemitism, how it affected their lives, and how they responded.
