Join us for an evening to commemorate 1700 years of German-Jewish lives.

The University of St. Thomas presents David Brown from the Leo Baeck Institute (LBI) New York/Berlin, who will talk about the “Shared History Project” at the opening of a related poster exhibition in the Iversen Center for Faith at the University of St. Thomas.

The Leo Baeck Institute’s newest initiative focuses on migration, inclusion, exclusion, acculturation, persecution, and resilience characterizing Jewish life in Europe over two millennia. LBIĀ is marking the 1700 year anniversary with the “Shared History Project”, an online exhibition of 58 objects revealing how interwoven the lives of Jews and non-Jews have been over these nearly two millennia.

Also on display is Crimes Uncovered: The First Generation Holocaust Researchers exhibition, which commemorates the life and work of 20 pioneers of Holocaust research.

Before and after the lecture by David Brown, guests will have a chance to view the two exhibitions, which will be on view from November 8 to 22 at the Iversen Center for Faith at the University of St. Thomas.

6 p.m. Reception | 7:15 p.m. Talk and Q&A
