Immigration in Maryland Today

Sunday, July 21, 2019 at 1pm

Get Tickets Now (JMM Members – Reserve Your Seats) or Get Tickets and Reserve a Seat on the Bus

 

 

The national conversation around issues of immigration is noisy, impassioned, and complicated. Inspired by our current exhibit Stitching History From The Holocaust—the story of two individuals who lost their lives when they were unable to secure visas to escape Europe—we will explore lessons that could, and should, have been learned from our shared history. Join us for this very special panel discussion examining the local side of this national story with a team of experts who are working closely with Maryland’s newest arrivals.

 

The presentation will be followed by a facilitated discussion and light refreshments (dietary laws observed). In connection with this series a bus will be available from Baltimore Hebrew Congregation (BHC) to the Jewish Museum of Maryland (JMM). The bus will depart BHC for the JMM at noon, then depart the JMM at 3:00pm following the program and reception. Bus reservations will close 48 hours before the programs start time (see link above).

 

This program is part of the Recovery & Renewal: The Immigration Experience series, presented in partnership with Baltimore Hebrew Congregation. The Recovery & Renewal series is made possible through the generosity of the Lois Rosenfield Caring Fund of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation.

 

This program is also presented in partnership with the Esperanza Center.

 

 

This program is presented in relation to theStitching History from the Holocaustexhibit, on view April 7 – August 4, 2019. Tickets to public programs include admission to the Museum.

Join author Charles Heller as he shares the riveting adventure and moving recollection of a loving family – his own – nearly destroyed by the Nazis. Born in Czechoslovakia to a Jewish father and Christian mother, raised Roman Catholic and hidden on a farm, ignorant of his own Jewish roots, Dr. Heller explores his personal journey to discover and embrace his heritage. From Communist-controlled Czechoslovakia to a new life in America, Dr. Heller’s story is a long journey of persecution, struggle, and survival.

 

Following this presentation, Dr. Heller will be signing copies of his book Prague: My Long Journey Home, available for purchase at Esther’s Place: the JMM Shop.

 

This program is presented in relation to the Stitching History from the Holocaust exhibit, on view April 7 – August 4, 2019. Tickets to public programs include admission to the Museum.
