Discussion | Beyond These Walls: Material Cultures of Jewish and Chinese Detainees (online)


To mark the common historical experiences shared by Jewish and Chinese people seeking to emigrate to the United States, the Center for Jewish History and the Museum of Chinese in America hold a special panel discussion on the unique materials created by Jewish and Chinese detainees in the U.S. and abroad and their experiences. Scholars Claire R. Thomas (Professor of Law and Director of the Asylum Clinic at New York Law School), Roslyn Bernstein (Professor Emerita, Baruch College, CUNY and Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism), and Ayelet Brinn (Philip D. Feltman Assistant Professor of Modern Jewish History, University of Hartford) will hold a discussion moderated by Andrew Rebatta, curator of MOCA's 2017 special exhibition FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures. A highlight of the event will be discussion of reminiscences from a Jewish detainee onboard the SS St. Louis, the ship that carried more than 900 Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany intending to escape anti-Semitic persecution, which was turned away by both the U.S. and Canada in 1939. Another highlight will be a child's charm bracelet created in the Westerbork Concentration Camp in the Netherlands. Representatives from MOCA will bring items from their Golden Venture Paper Sculptures collection to be viewed during a dessert reception to follow the discussion.
