Lawyers Without Rights

Lawyers Without Rights is an important documentary exhibit coming to the Mark O. Hatfield US Courthouse October 19-November 16, 2012.  Depicting the fate of Jewish lawyers in Germany after 1933, the exhibit “recalls the lawyers who were persecuted by the National Socialists and addresses the illegal measures they had to endure … making the extent of loss caused by isolation, expulsion and murder painfully clear. Through different biographical portraits it also gives the viewer new insight into both the historical events and the legal realm.”
