‘A Night at the Garden’: What We Can Learn from a 1939 Nazi Rally
April 11 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
As part of part of FIT’s annual Holocaust commemoration, the college will screen the 2019 Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary Short Subject A Night at the Garden and host a discussion with director Marshall Curry.
In 1939, 20,000 Americans rallied in New York’s Madison Square Garden to celebrate the rise of Nazism—an event largely forgotten from American history. A Night at the Garden, made entirely from archival footage filmed that night, transports audiences to this chilling gathering and shines a light on the power of demagoguery and anti-Semitism in the United States.
This event is free and open to the public.
