Schaumburg Library hosts Holocaust Remembrance Day programs
To honor Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan. 27, the Schaumburg Library is offering an evening with author Michael Greenberg discussing his book "Tables Turned on Them: Jews Guarding Nazi POWs" on Jan. 18 and a viewing and discussion of the documentary "Hitler's Courts" on Jan. 25.
Along with Arlington Heights Memorial Library, Schaumburg Library is co-sponsoring an evening with author and filmmaker Joshua M. Greene. View Greene's 35-minute documentary "Hitler's Courts," then join him for a discussion of the consequences of appointing judges based not on their wisdom, but on their allegiance to the head of state. This program will take place online via Zoom at 7 p.m. Jan. 25.
In his book "Tables Turned on Them: Jews Guarding Nazi POWs," Greenberg chronicles his father's experience as a Jewish GI assigned to guard German POWs at Camp Clinton in Mississippi. Join Greenberg for a discussion of his book and this topic on Zoom at 7 p.m. Jan. 18.
