They escaped Adolf Hitler, only to encounter Jim Crow. How did so many Jewish scholars end up at southern HBCUs, and how did they fare? The traveling exhibit "Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow: Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges" seeks to explore the answer to those questions through historical objects, photos, texts and artwork. After fleeing Nazi Germany, several dozen Jewish educators found kindred souls in Black scholars at southern HBCUs who were struggling with repression in the form of Jim Crow. The exhibit, now at the Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Skokie, III., uses nearly 100 artifacts, including receipts of fines incurred for interracial dining in Birmingham, Ala., to tell the stories of the two groups. The exhibit will run at the Illinois museum through May 31, and then join the Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg, Ra., in November.
