Reicher will spend one week at the USC Shoah Foundation on the campus of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles to interact with the institute’s leaders and experts on the Visual History Archive to learn how to best teach with the institute’s testimonies by Holocaust survivors. He will present a lecture at USC on his intended use of the testimonies. Also, Reicher will present a lecture at Penn.
As a Fellow, he will utilize the institute’s Visual History Archive in his Penn Law course “Law and the Holocaust,” which examines the Nazi philosophy of law emanating from racial ideology. The testimonies will help emphasize how the legal system set in place by the National Socialist regime dehumanized a particular demographic of its citizens, creating a new way in which students can examine the historic laws and how they personally affected individuals.
