FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


The Louisiana Supreme Court announced today that it will host an exhibit entitled Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich. The exhibit will be on display in the Louisiana Supreme Court Law Museum, 400 Royal Street, Monday - Friday, during regular courthouse hours 9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M., from April 28 to May 31, 2017.


According to Chief Justice Bernette J. Johnson, “The highly acclaimed, international exhibit tells the important story of Hitler’s systemic exclusion of German Jewish lawyers and judges where, in furtherance of his cruel and oppressive dictatorship, he prevented them from practicing their profession. Hitler’s Third Reich was the complete antithesis of a fair and just legal system and this exhibit poignantly reminds us why we must dearly guard and preserve the rule of law.”


The North American showing of the exhibit is a joint project of the German Federal Bar, known as the Bundesrechtsandwaltskammer, and the American Bar Association. There are two identical exhibits now traveling throughout the United States and other parts of North America. To date the exhibit has appeared in more than three dozen cities in the United States.


For more information about the Louisiana Supreme Court exhibit of Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich, contact Louisiana Law Library Director Miriam Childs at 504.310.2411 or Mchilds@lasc.org.
