VIDEOS by Rick Landman
LGBT & Holocaust Related
This section explores the Holocaust from the eyes of a gay son of two refugee Holocaust Survivors. It also includes video clips from Kristallnacht, Yom Hashoah, and Second Generation programs, etc.
In November 2016, Rick Landman spoke at the annual Kristallnacht Service at CBST for 5 minutes about the Jewish Refugee Internment Camp at Oswego New York, which was created towards the end of World War II for about 900 displaced European Jews, who were interned in NY under the threat of being returned back to Germany after the war's conclusion.
Ruth Gruber's book called "Haven" is an excellent account of the lives and struggles of the story of how America did take in refugees in 1944 outside of the Quota system, and how America reacted to having these mostly Jews in our midst. It is a must read to understand refugees, displaced persons, and why America didn't take in more survivors of the Holocaust. Below is the video clip of Rick's talk at CBST.
The following clip is from the Congregation Beit Simchat Torah's Kristallnacht Shabbat service.
