Join us in the USC Libraries Special Collections for the launch of Feuchtwanger and Judaism, the sixth volume of the series Feuchtwanger Studies. Paul Lerner (USC Dornsife Department of History), Marje Schuetze-Coburn (USC Libraries), Sean Nye (USC Thornton School of Music), and Adrian Feuchtwanger ’91 (independent translator) will discuss their contributions to the volume, the legacy of Lion Feuchtwanger, and historical and contemporary issues related to exiles, émigrés, and migrants. Special guest Edgar Feuchtwanger will also speak about his childhood in Munich, as detailed in his recent memoir Hitler, My Neighbor.

This marks the inaugural event of the lecture series “Exile and Resistance: Refugees and Migrants in Literature, History, and Public Affairs”—a collaboration between the USC Max Kade Institute for Austrian–German–Swiss Studies, USC Libraries, and the USC Dornsife Department of French and Italian.

Feuchtwanger and Judaism, Feuchtwanger’s diaries Lion Feuchtwanger: Ein Möglichst Intensives Leben, and Edgar Feuchtwanger’s book will all be available for purchase after the event.
