The Rosenstrasse Protest: Commemorating the 80th Anniversary
The Rosenstrasse Protest of 1943 was held against the incarceration and potential deportation of roughly 2,000 people who were arrested by the Gestapo on February 27, 1943. With their loved ones held at Rosenstraße 2-4 in Berlin, family members, many of whom were women, kept their protest going for a week until Nazi leader Joseph Goebbels ordered the prisoners’ release on March 6, 1943. This program marks the 80th anniversary of the protest and the context of the mass arrest which targeted “exempted” Jews, a term used for those who were married to a non-Jew or had one non-Jewish parent.
