The Midwest Center for Holocaust Education, in partnership with UMKC School of Law, presents a free public screening and discussion of “Nazi Law: Legally Blind,” a new documentary produced by Boston College professors John and Susan Michalczyk.
Gradually yet resolutely, the National Socialist government dismantled constitutional law and created a lethal totalitarian system that engulfed Germany and nearly all of Europe. Stating that the nation exists as a pure political and biological organism, the Nazi government imposed legislation that reinforced its ideological program in all aspects of German life. Filmed in Nuremberg, Munich and the Dachau concentration camp, “Nazi Law: Legally Blind” examines ways in which the Nazi party manipulated existing German laws and the judicial system to serve their racist agenda.
The film will be introduced by Dr. John Michalczyk, co-director of film studies and current chair of the Fine Arts Department at Boston College, with follow-up remarks offered by Dr. Shelly Cline, public historian at the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education. The program has been approved for two hours of Missouri CLE credit. Kansas CLE credit is pending.
Reservations are recommended by emailing email@example.com. Please provide the name of the program as well as your name, address, and telephone number. Also indicate if you plan to register for CLE credit.
