Statelessness from the Holocaust to Today and A Survivor’s Story

Thursday, April 16, 7:00 – 9:00 pm, ONLINE. 

 

More than ten million people in the world are stateless; they have no citizenship in any country.

When the German government took citizenship away from Jews in 1935, Jews attempted to seek asylum abroad. However, as Chaim Weizmann, who later became Israel’s first president, wrote in 1936, "The world seemed to be divided into two parts—those places where the Jews could not live, and those where they could not enter."

One of the few remaining places was Shanghai, China, which allowed entry without a visa or a passport.

Holocaust survivor Manny Gabler will talk about his family’s survival in the Shanghai ghetto for nine years.

Dr. Ellen Kennedy, Executive Director of World Without Genocide, will discuss the plight of being stateless today and the disproportionate implications of the pandemic for people without citizenship.

Reservations are required by April 14 at worldwithoutgenocide.org/survivor

Please see the attached Press Release for more information.
