Pride Month: Defying Nazi Persecution
|Date||Wed, Jun 30, 8:30am - 9:00am|
It was a daring and dangerous mission. To try to protect the true identities of Jews and resistance fighters hiding behind false ID cards, members of a Dutch resistance group knew they had to destroy the originals. Dressed as policemen, they entered the Amsterdam Registry and set off explosions that burned 800,000 identity cards. This Pride Month, join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and learn about Frieda Belinfante, one of Europe’s first female conductors and a Jewish lesbian, and painter Willem Arondeus, the gay leader of this group of artists turned resisters.
