Speaker: Dr. Mark N. Ozer, author of "The Litvak Legacy"
Location: Kehilat Shalom Congregation; Gaithersburg, MD
Charges of Nazi collaboration, accusations regarding complicity, defensiveness and mutual mistrust appear to be the hallmarks of Lithuanian Jewish relations, but has it always been this way? What are roots of anti-Semitism in Lithuania and how has anti-Semitism waxed, waned and evolved? What is the state of this relationship today and its outlook for the future? These questions and many others are addressed in the discussion of the progression of Lithuanian Jewish relations.
