The Curtis Laws Wilson Library is hosting an exhibit on a Missouri rabbi who traveled to Nazi Germany, in connection with the Americans and the Holocaust exhibition.

“Rabbi Ferdinand Isserman Sounds a Warning – Missourians and the Holocaust” is available to view on the second floor of the library through Oct. 31. Isserman traveled to Germany several times during the 1930s and reported back to Missourians, including the Missouri S&T campus, on the dangers he witnessed. The exhibit will highlight Missourians’ experiences of the Holocaust at home, on the battlefield, and as survivors.
