Ithaca Premiere of "CowJews and Indians: How Hitler Scared My Relatives - and I Woke Up in an Iroquois Longhouse with a Picture of Jesus, Reminding Me - for the Wrong Reason - That I Owe the Mohawks Rent."
A discussion with Writer and Director, Marc Halberstadt, will follow.
Marc wants to get back the home that the Nazis long ago seized from his German-Jewish parents and collect rent from the Germans now living there. But his family fled to America—seized from Native Americans, to whom he now—in turn— owes rent. Why not let the Native Americans collect rent directly from the Germans? Cut out the middleman!
Sponsored by the Jewish Studies Program, American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program, Cornell Institute for European Studies, Department of German Studies, American Studies Program, and Institute for German Cultural Studies.
