The next film in the 2018 Sandra and Mendel Rosenberg Sunday Afternoon Film Series will be I Accuse (Ich klage an) screening at 1:00 pm on April 29 in the Holocaust Museum & Learning Center Theater at 12 Millstone Campus Drive. Films in this Sunday series are free and open to the public.
In this Nazi-era melodrama, a successful doctor gives his incurably ill wife a fatal overdose and is put on trial for murder. The popular film presented an argument for euthanasia at a time when the killing of the mentally and physically disabled was already in process.
Introductory remarks and post-screening discussion facilitated by Dr. Warren Rosenblum, currently Chair of the History, Politics and International Relations Department at Webster University. As Visiting Fellow at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies (2017), Dr. Rosenblum pursued research for his project “The Feeble-Minded in Germany: Between Sympathy and Persecution.”
