Sanctuary in the Heights: Migration and Memory in Washington Heights
Rob Snyder, author of the book "Crossing Broadway, Washington Heights and the Promise of New York City" and Professor of Journalism and American Studies at Rutgers University-Newark, moderates a panel discussion in the northern Manhattan neighborhood once known as Frankfurt on the Hudson for its large population of German-Jewish refugees. Eight decades later, the neighborhood is still a vibrant home for new immigrant communities. Our panel will discuss the past, present, and future of Washington Heights as a home for people seeking refuge.

Hasia Diner, Professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies and History at New York University

Angela Fernandez, Executive Director of the Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights

Mark S. Hamburgh, Former President of Hebrew Tabernacle Congregation

Ruth Westheimer, Therapist and author

Separate tickets are available for the walking tour and panel discussion. Tickets to the walking tour include admission to the panel discussion.
