Confronting Hate 1937–1952
Hosted By: Baltimore Zionist District
Join the BZD and New-York Historical Society for a virtual walk through a timely exhibition that explores the groundbreaking campaign launched by the American Jewish Committee (AJC) in 1937 to combat increasing antisemitism in the United States during the interwar period. Under the leadership of advertising executive Richard Rothschild, a groundbreaking multimedia campaign was organized to combat “all forms of bigotry.” Renowned New York cartoonists Eric Godal, Carl Rose, and Bernard Seaman pooled their talents to create a series of posters, comic books, pamphlets, and newspaper cartoons that graphically confronted racism, nativism, and antisemitism and championed democratic values and understanding.
