The Jewish Question: A Report from the Jewish Deportation As Documented by C.S. Chaplin, a play by Reuven Glezer, Baruch alumnus, and based on an original translation by Dr. Debra Caplan, Department of Fine and Performing Arts
In a distant, unfamiliar 1934, an ominous German official proposes a plan: deport all the Jews in the world to Israel to finally be rid of the Jewish question. What happens next is a dystopian fantasia: Einstein becomes President of Israel, Charlie Chaplin is accidentally deported, revolutions rise and fall, divine beings decide it is high time to kickstart the end of days, and questions about the meaning of home, exile, and country abound. The Jewish Question is a blistering dark comedy about the absurdities of an uncertain, tumultuous historical moment. Adapted from the first English translation of Aaron Zeitlin’s 1934 Yiddish play Weizmann the Second, written in response to the rise of Hitler.

The Anatomy of Antisemitism: Jews, Cadavers, and the Politics of Medical Discourse in East Central Europe, speaker, Dr. Natalia Alekskiun, Touro College Graduate School of Jewish Studies
This lecture examines the conflict over dissections at European universities in the interwar period. Beginning in the early 1920s Christian and nationalist student organizations began to demand that Jewish communities provide “Jewish bodies” for dissections as a condition for admitting Jews to medical schools. They appealed to university authorities, and the broader public for support, organized demonstrations and engaged in violence targeting Jewish medical students at universities in Austria, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia. In analyzing the affair, The Anatomy of Antisemitism will build on research on the relationship between modernity and the anti-Semitic imagination, arguing that the increasing visibility of Jews in medical schools constituted a challenge not only to the nation-building aspirations of new states, but also exposed intergenerational rifts between religious.
