Professor Nathan Stoltzfus-Rescue and Resistance; the Rosenstrasse Rebellion in History and Memory
the Rosenstrasse protest was a one-of-a-kind rebellion that took place in Germany in early 1943. Initiated and sustained by non-Jewish women, this was the only mass public demonstration in the Third Reich completely carried out solely by German citizens. As a result of the rebellion, German women married to Jewish men successfully prevented their loved ones from being sent to concentration camps. Come hear the story of this incredible event from the leading expert on this unique protest.
Nathan Stoltzfus is Dorothy and Jonathon Rintels professor of Holocaust studies at Florida State University and author or editor of seven award-winning books.
