The Voyage of the St. Louis

STAJE Seminar for Teachers in Jewish Schools


Date:  February 5, 2017 

Time: 12:30 P.M. – 5 P.M.

Fee:  Free of charge but advance registration is required

Join scholars and former St. Louis passenger Sonja Geismar as we explore the history of the St. Louis, the German ocean liner turned away first from Havana, then from the United States, and subsequently forced to return to Europe. What did the story of the St. Louis say about the situation of European Jews on the eve of the Holocaust? What did it say about the desire and ability of American Jews to advocate for European Jews? Finally, what was the fate of the passengers in the following years?

The program is open to current classroom teachers and is free of charge. Space is limited and advance registration is required. For more information, please contact Dr. Paul Radensky at pradensky@mjhnyc.org or call 646.437.4310.

A light lunch for teachers will be available at 11:45 A.M. (dietary laws observed).
