Trinity Hillel commemorates Kristallnacht

Trinity College’s Hillel organization commemorated Kristallnacht, the “Night of the Broken Glass,” with a special program held Nov. 9 at the school. The program featured a screening of the Emmy-nominated documentary “Nobody Wants Us,” which tells the story of a shipload of Jewish refugees who were allowed into the United States despite isolationist, anti-refugee and antisemitic sentiments. The film also explored how the U.S. responded to Jews fleeing war-torn Europe and encouraged viewers to consider the country’s response to refugees today. 

The screening was followed by a panel discussion with filmmaker Laura Seltzer-Duny, former Afghan refugee Alia Seraj, and director of Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services Chris George, moderated by Richard Weingarten (’68).
