“Lawyers without Rights”, a traveling exhibition, depicts how Jewish lawyers were barred from courts beginning in 1933 and how individual rights and the Rule of Law were neglected during the Nazi era. The exhibit was created by the Berlin regional Bar Association to document the treatment of its Jewish members during the Third Reich and first came to LBI in 2004. In conjunction with the opening of the exhibition in a Brooklyn courthouse, LBI will co-sponsor a presentation by Douglas G. Morris, author of Justice Imperiled: The Anti-Nazi Lawyer Max Hirschberg in Weimar Germany.
The exhibit will be on display in the lobby of the Conrad B. Duberstein U.S. Courthouse, 271 Cadman Plaza East, in Brooklyn from April 14 to May 2 during business hours.
