"What If" in American Jewish History and Contemporary Jewish Life
 
Live Broadcast Begins at 7:30 p.m.

City: New York

Additional Notes:
Shown live on the Jewish Broadcast Service, this event will launch Professor Jeffrey S. Gurocks latest book, The Holocaust Averted: An Alternate History of American Jewry, 1938–1967 (Rutgers University Press).

The Holocaust Averted has already been lauded as a “provocative, path-breaking book… filled with familiar characters in unfamiliar and intriguing roles that is sure to challenge—and, quite possibly, to infuriate readers.”

This intriguing work considers what might have happened to the Jewish community in the United States if the Holocaust had never occurred and forces readers to contemplate how the road to acceptance and empowerment for todays American Jews could have been harder than it actually was.

Join the audience as Professor Gurock and Rabbi Golub explore many reasonable historical alternatives grounded in what is actually known about the tumultuous, catastrophic and climatic 30 years that bridge the beginnings of the Holocaust, the rise of the State of Israel and Israels triumph in the Six Day War, and what this novel approach to history tells about the real world that Jews live in today.

Book signing and collation to follow.

Additional Notes:
Join us for a book launch, reading, and screening to celebrate the translation of Yitzhak Gormezano-Gorens groundbreaking novel Alexandrian Summer into English.

For the occasion, we will premiere a documentary by renowned filmmaker and NYU alum Amit Goren (Year 66 was Good for Tourism), the son-in-law of Yitzhak Gormezano-Goren, who has put together a new documentary especially for this event. The film is based on the trip of the Gormezano-Goren family – based both in Tel-Aviv and in LA.

We will be honored to host, Egyptian-born, Israeli-based novelist and playwright Yitzhak Gormezano-Goren for this event, as well as Yale Comparative Literature Professor Hannan Hever, for a reading and conversation after the screening.

Alexandrian Summer will be the first translation from Gormezano-Gorens acclaimed work into English. A key figure in Mizrahi culture in Israel, Gormezano-Goren has written numerous novels, plays, and has founded the groundbreaking academic journal Direction: Eastward. First published in 1979 in Hebrew, Alexandrian Summer became a milestone in Mizrahi literature and culture in Israel: it tells the story of two Jewish families living their frenzied last days in the cosmopolitan social whirl of Alexandria just before migrating to Israel in 1951.

Presented in partnership with the Mizrahi Film Series, the Taub Center for Israel Studies, The Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies Department, and the Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, New York University.

On October 8, 1985, terrorists representing the Palestinian Liberation Organization stormed the Achille Lauro cruise ship, murdering Leon Klinghoffer, who was vacationing with his wife and friends. His tragic death became a rallying cry in the fight against terrorism. In the ensuing years the story was co-opted and re-told through the lens of popular culture. Join us as Ilsa Klinghoffer and Lisa Klinghoffer and other special guests reveal their stories publicly for the first time.

Crossfire
 
First Response: Postwar Cinema and the Holocaust Film Series
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( Center for Jewish History and American Jewish Historical Society)
Center for Jewish History and American Jewish Historical Society
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Directed by Edward Dmytryk, Crossfire (1947) is an Academy Award-nominated film noir that was one of the first films to raise the subject of anti-Semitism in the postwar U.S., along with the better-known Gentlemens Agreement. Crossfire stars Robert Mitchum and Robert Young as police investigators gradually piecing together the fragments of the night leading to the brutal killing of an innocent Jewish man.

Discussant: Thomas Doherty, Brandeis University.

The series: In 1945 World War II ended, and the horrors of the Holocaust were exposed to the world. Filmmakers began to engage with the difficult subject, first in documentaries and then in feature films. This series explores films of the immediate postwar era produced in the US, Poland, Germany, and Soviet Union. Coming from both sides of the Iron Curtain, these four films present international cinemas first responses to the Holocaust. They reflect a range of perspectives from victims to perpetrators, from fighters to bystanders, from insiders to outsiders. The films—some classic, some forgotten—cast a long shadow, influencing both later Holocaust representations and our present understanding of the catastrophic events.

First Response Film Series has been supported by a generous grant from The David Berg Foundation.
