An Interview with Holocaust Survivor Werner Reich: Magic in the Death Camp

Event Details

Werner Reich was captured and imprisoned when he was 15 years old and spent time in three different concentration camps.

While at Auschwitz, he saw a magician--the Great Nivelli--do a card trick, and this spawned a lifelong interest in magic. Werner joins magician, author, and entrepreneur Joshua Jay onstage for an interview about his unbelievable and harrowing time at Auschwitz, and the magic that helped him get through it and past it.

      THE JAZZ SINGER | Blacks, Jews, and Jazz | Film and Discussion

      The Jazz Singer starring Al Jolson was the first hit Hollywood film musical with synchronized sound. Telling a story about Jewish assimilation via jazz music, the film notoriously featured Al Jolson in blackface for its climatic numbers. Watch the film and then join Dr. Dwight Andrews and Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein for discussion of its use of jazz, its racial dynamics, and its place in the long and unfortunate history of the representation of Blackface, which persists to this day.
