Pioneers and Refugees: Sephardic Jews, Identity, and Empire in the Spanish Borderlands of North America

Central ***Registration is required to attend online*** The Spanish conquest of the Americas that began with the Caribbean in 1492 has long overshadowed the fact that Jews were expelled from Spain that same year as the culmination of centuries-long persecution during the Reconquista against Moors, pogroms, and Inquisition.

The Shelter and the Fence: When 982 Holocaust Refugees Found Safe Haven in America

San Antonio Public Library Online ***Registration is required*** Join us for a conversation with Norman H Finkelstein, author of The Shelter and the Fence. In 1944, at the height of World War II, 982 European refugees found a temporary haven at Fort Ontario in Oswego, New York. They were men, women, and children who had spent frightening years one step ahead of Nazi pursuers and death. They spoke nineteen different languages, and, while most of the refugees were Jewish, a number were Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and Protestant Christians. From the time they arrived at the Fort Ontario Emergency Refugee Shelter on August 5 they began re-creating their lives and embarked on the road to becoming American citizens. In the history of World War II and the Holocaust, this "token" save by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the War Refugee Board was too little and too late for millions. But for those few who reached Oswego it was life changing. The Shelter and the Fence tells their stories. Branch Location: Online. Event Type(s): Presentation & Lecture. Staff Contact Name: Morgan Yoshimura. Staff Contact Number/Email: morgan.yoshimura@sanantonio.gov. Audience: Adults. Seniors. Featured Event: The Holocaust: Learn and Remember.

Pioneers and Refugees: Sephardic Jews, Identity, and Empire in the Spanish Borderlands of North America

Landa ***Registration is required to attend online*** The Spanish conquest of the Americas that began with the Caribbean in 1492 has long overshadowed the fact that Jews were expelled from Spain that same year as the culmination of centuries-long persecution during the Reconquista against Moors, pogroms, and Inquisition. While this Sephardic Jewish history is less visible in the public imagination, their history nonetheless takes on greater significance in the present as we are reminded of the Holocaust from survivors and scholars as hatred and persecution of the “other” remains.

Café Con Libros: On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong

Potranco "On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family's history that began before he was born -- a history whose epicenter is rooted in Vietnam -- and serves as a doorway into parts of his life his mother has never known, all of it leading to an unforgettable revelation. At once a witness to the fraught yet undeniable love between a single mother and her son, it is also a brutally honest exploration of race, class, and masculinity."
