Lawyers Without Rights

When Hitler took power in Germany in 1933, he systematically disenfranchised Jewish lawyers, taking away their access to the courts and their right to practice the law.

The exhibit, "Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich," on display in Kreeger Lobby from February 13 - March 2, traces how Hitler stripped away individual rights and chronicles the ensuing silence from members of the legal profession. The opening event for this exhibit will look at the fate of the law under the Third Reich and the duty lawyers have to stand against injustice.
