Conversation: "Hiding: Jewish Life in Nazi Germany"

What was it like to be a Jew in Nazi Germany? For those trapped in the Nazi terror regime, it was about mere survival. Those who went underground, including the artist Fritz Ascher, endured the terrors of nightly bombings and the constant fear of being discovered. All were pressed to the limits of human endurance and loneliness. Marion Kaplan, Skirball Professor of Modern Jewish History at NYU, and Rachel Stern, Director of the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized, and Banned Art and Curator of Fritz Ascher Exhibition, discuss.
The talk is offered in conjunction with the exhibition Fritz Ascher: Expressionist, on view at the Grey Art Gallery in New York City.
