Wwii Japanese Internments: Can It Happen Again?, Karen Korematsu, Robert Leon Rusky, Nasrina Bargzie

The Jesse Carter Distinguished Lecture Series

In 1942 at the age of 23, Fred Korematsu intentionally defied Executive Order 9066 and refused to go to the government’s incarceration camps for American citizens of Japanese ancestry.

Early Modern Workshop: Resources in Jewish History

Rabbinic courts were and remain an integral part of the Jewish community and the Jewish community in Frankfurt in the late eighteenth century had not one but two such courts. The courts handled a wide range of issues including divorces, contracts, real estate transactions, trusts, estates, and also gave opinions on the scope of Jewish communal authority. This particular case deals with a house on the so called "Judengasse" in Frankfurt.
