German-Jewish Diaspora and its Cross-Pacific Experience: From China to the United States  (Webinar)
6:00 pm
Central Time Zone (CT) - Online [English]
More than 17,000 German and Austrian Jewish refugees fled from the Nazi terror to Shanghai, China, from 1938 to 1941. The refugees’ hope to use Shanghai as a temporary safe haven was soon dashed by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and they ended up spending a decade in China. Professor Weijia Li will examine how the German-Jewish refugee community in Shanghai thrived despite the harshness of life in exile during the war and how its members looked forward to a new life in America.
 
Registration is required. Email Antje Petty of the Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies (apetty@wisc.edu) to receive a link, which will be sent on Oct. 18.

A Nation of Descendants: Politics and the Practice of Genealogy in U.S. History  (Webinar)
1:00 pm
Eastern Time Zone (ET) - Online [English]
Author Francesca Morgan traces Americans’ fascination with tracking family lineage through three centuries. She examines how specific groups throughout history grappled with finding and recording their forebears, focusing on Anglo-American, Mormon, African American, Jewish, and Native American people. She explores how genealogy has always mattered in the United States, whether for taking stock of kin when organizing a family reunion or drawing on membership—by blood or other means—to claim rights to land, inheritances, and more. And today, millions of people have used DNA kits to learn about their medical histories, biological parentage, and ethnic background.
