Belmont University College of Law is currently hosting an international exhibit that features photos, documents and written narrative that convey the stories of Jewish lawyers, many of whom were among the first purged in Nazi Germany. The exhibit — which has been displayed in more than 100 cities in Germany, the U.S. and other parts of the world — is available for viewing now through June 1 in Belmont’s Baskin Center. The exhibit, “Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany under the Third Reich,” was conceived in 1998 when an Israeli lawyer asked the regional bar of Berlin for a list of Jewish Lawyers whose licenses had been revoked by the Nazi regime.
