"There's a wonderful story about more field. Who was the governor of oregon in the nineteen eighties of course and he was a student at willamette university and brought the civil rights leaders marian anderson and paul robeson saying on campus and what he found out this is the nineteen forties was no place on Salem oregon that they could spend the night right because of the public that went on there was segregated so when he had his first venture into politics he was a state representative in oregon and one of the first things. He endeavoured to is pass the public accommodations law and this was nineteen fifty three so that you could no longer segregate who could sleep in hotel or you could no longer segregate whites together unless a so judy. Thanks for being with us today. My pleasure saw. How in the world did you get there. What is your background at. How did you end up being the director of this museum. In portland oregon. Well i actually come from canada. I grew up outside of toronto. So i was living in toronto and working in toronto after finishing a graduate degree in museum studies. I was working in a museum in toronto. A met my husband. They're married him there and he got a job in portland so i was at that point really the dutiful wife who followed their husband to start working in portland. My first career here I had a short stint at the washington. The washington county historical society. And then. I actually went to ozzy where i was. The curator trader for a decade. I had studied in school Believe it or not. I studied nineteenth century decorative arts so i was really far. Afield from decorative arts in taking the job at on c. But it really gave me a chance to kind of hone. My belief in humanizing exhibitions of all kinds So i did a lot exhibition development. They're mostly focusing on the more historical aspects rather than the scientific aspects the jewish museum. The oregon jewish museum was nascent at that time. So we're talking the very late nineteen eighties and it had been occuren- an idea by Esteemed rabbi in portland by joshua stem for who decided that the community needed a jewish so that non jews could understand jewish art history and culture. The museum was founded in nineteen ninety as a museum without walls. The idea being didn't need a physical space but it could exist with a membership and bringing exhibits two spaces in portland and that actually worked for a number of years. There was a small membership. There was a collection that started an archive that had come from the jewish society of oregon but ultimately There was the realization that has museum needed physical space and that propelled the oregon jewish museum in a series of rentals or borrowed spaces up until two thousand nine. The museum actually moved to a space at nineteenth and current in portland and stayed there for a number of years in twenty fourteen. The museum entered the oregon. Jewish museum entered into negotiations with the oregon holocaust resource center to merge the two organizations and become one and this was a sort of the beginning of where the museum is today in that. There was I i've been the director since the early two thousand so it. It seemed very weak very important that this regional jewish museum start to take on the mantle of holocaust education. I really felt was our obligation. As long ago as two thousand and fourteen five years ago we were already entering a period where survivors of the holocaust were aging. And very soon we would not have them with us to be the first person testimony of the horrors of the holocaust. So i knew that as a regional museum we had a place where we could be educating others so that that merger took place in twenty fourteen and then shortly after that the museum which had become the oregon jewish museum and center for holocaust education determined. It was time to buy a home and things fell into place for us and we were able to purchase our current home today on north west davis strait. While this is wayne park with a source. Your podcast that's judy markle's who were talking with a remotely today. And she said her office in oregon jewish museum and center for holocaust education. Judy went from there. And you talked about the horrors of the holocaust and getting these oral histories from people a very different place. I picture myself working there. How do you by definition. Most holocaust stories are so powerful and to me. It's almost overwhelming. How do how do people who especially worked there. Transcend the despair At that must be attached to that in the power of those stories. I always say that our work is really really hard because you know in particularly today where were were working in an atmosphere of rising anti anti semitism rhetoric on in public discourse. That we really. Haven't you know many of us many of the kids. We have coming into this museum. They haven't seen in their lifetime. So i do say our work is very difficult. I also say our work right now is urgent We as a staff. I think you know to use that expression of self care. I think we are Very good at talking when things are very difficult for us we Honestly we have dogs are. Many of us are dog owners and quite frankly our dogs service therapy to us. Our administrative offices are are separate from the museum so a dog can come in here quite quite happily not be a burden to anybody who doesn't in the galleries etc It and it's also because we we believe in our mission if we can connect the holocaust what happened in the holocaust and make connections to our visitors so that they understand that by looking at patterns of human behavior in in human history and helping particularly school children understand that there are ways to break those patterns of behavior on to better the world so our work is difficult. but it's also really liked affirming because we were we've chosen to remain hopeful about the ways. We can teach him release. That can help visitors. Understand arbil's.

"When you start talking. About the holocaust when there are real holocaust survivors, here right now saying it is nothing like what happened, then I think that is the problem, I think, specifically with her when she's doing it on her Instagram story, live, which I understand. That's how the kids do what I am sort of borderline on still being a who I'm thirty four. But I do think we are talking about something serious, do it in a platform that is more serious. You get what I said, we're really comparing. Red jet to retorts. We're not airing it too. I mean we are not exterminating people yet. No. I mean I mean come on, come on, come on, with that Meghan kids died at that border. Megan, I don't agree on anything. But if we agree on this. I just I think she went too far comparing. What is happening on the border? Which we all know is despicable family, my grandfather's Jewish. So, yes, maybe I take this personally, but I just she went too far, but I will say there have been holocaust survivors, that have also come out in support of ASC. There's someone Adam class feld who said who makes did he? He's a reporter but he said he tweeted out that the director of the Oregon Jewish museum in central for holocaust education, said that for those criticizing AOC's remarks on US concentration camps. This sworn court declaration from last year is from the director of that organization, and she shares the fears of survive. And, but we can be anecdotal all day long. I mean congressman Josh Goff Heimer of New Jersey who has family members in the holocaust came out and condemn this. Here's the thing. So there are we? We've been going through this for the last couple of years with this one in the in the White House, and I'm sure it's not going to stop because some stuff compares in people's minds.

And what are the hours and exhibits street historic town? It's very near to what is referred to as corned beef row, and it is really close to the Louis museum of African American history and culture and the star spangled banner flag house. What what do you think the significance of the Jewish museum of Maryland is to to residents? Well, you know, there's a rich history of the Jewish people in Maryland. And it goes back all the way to the sixteen. Fifties and comes forward today, and our museum tells the story of everyday life for the Jewish people over a period of three centuries. Especially the fact that we have the Lloyd street synagogue, the third oldest synagogue in the United States still standing, and it's from eighteen forty five and was built by the first German news to come to Baltimore. That's just amazing. It's still a practicing synagogue people still worship, Lloyd street. Synagogue is now fully a museum poker. But on the other side of us is also on our property, and we give tours of it as well as bananas real, which is a practicing synagogue, it broke away under the name physical Muna in eighteen seventy six and it's been operating as an orthodox synagogue now for over one hundred and twenty five years, the first Jewish settlers, come to Maryland, all the first one was Jacob lumber Russo that we wear of he was a doctor and he came in sixteen fifty four and within three years who was arrested for blasphemy. There's always been kind of a a struggle for Jewish civil rights in Maryland. So he came over here. I guess not too long after the the people on the ark and the dove, right? Just a few years later. We're talking Marvin pinker, executive director of Jewish museum of Maryland.

And the next project is again, a very interesting one it's about Jewish refugees in Shanghai in that'll open this Sunday. And it's a really little known story of how twenty thousand Jews were saved during the holocaust by making their way to Shanghai only place, the only major city that was visa-free where they could escape when the west closed its doors to refugees. Some of the questions here Marvin. And again is there an admission fee, and where do you park, and can you be a member? There is a parking lot public parkland across the street, and there is also street parking all around us. So it's pretty convenient. There's usually a space and the fees are ten dollars for adults eight dollars for seniors and further discounts for students and Merican servicemen are free.

Former Pfizer that the as Lama state. The suspect in the killing of four people, Brussels. Jewish museum went on trial in Brussels on Thursday Teri Schultz has more I go fully who deaf recalls exactly how she found out. The Brussels Jewish museum had suffered a deadly attack may twenty fourth twenty fourteen. It was a Sunday. And India, my father called me to say, well, you sit down, You know you know. with my family. Everything is fine. What happened? And so he told me that he heard that. There was a shooting on the streets of the museum follicle deaf rush downtown where she soon learned the shooting was not on the street. But in the museum that two of our colleagues had been shot along with to museum visitors. The murders took only eighty two seconds all caught on closer camera with the gunman calmly shooting his victims than putting the weapons in a duffel bag and walking out the door disappearing into the crowd. Belgian foreign minister the lenders happened to be one of the first on the scene. He saw the first victims on the ground and called emergency services. Vendors told me that day had a big impact on impersonal, many, every balls and documents. Defend their actions, all different conflict. But when you're out there is totally different emotion. Deaf agrees. It was the worst of times that brought out some of the best in society. Well, kind of changed for us.

Torturers their moose then allegedly came back to Europe the institute's Thomas Renard explains why new moosh is an important figure. He was not among the very first one to leave Europe for Saran Iraq. But he was certainly in the first waves, and that sort of allowed him to to go relatively high would say in the organization of the state in Saran Iraq in those days, and he did have a relatively I would say important place in that organization as a Frank as European. He was part of that relatively limited group of very dangerous very committed European Frank fighters who have been involved in this series of attacks that have struck Europe between two thousand fourteen and two thousand and sixteen initial face trial later in France for his role in the hostage taking of the journalists. One of the other men the identified from Syria ended up being. One of those who allegedly carried out the attacks on the Brussels subway and airport in March twenty sixteen moosh also has a co-defendant an acquaintance from his earlier criminal days in France accused of being as weapons dealer. Thomas Renard says terrorism experts will be studying this trial closely, it's very important trial. Because it's the first trial of returning Frank fighter here in Europe. It's the first attack committed by someone who came back from Iran, Iraq. And so it does matter not only symbolically, but also to to better understand what his trajectory was what his motives were..

"Now, a story about a monkey a stuffed toy monkey barely four inches tall made by the German toymaker Steiff it belonged to a young Jewish boy at the time. Hitler was rising to power the monkey would take a journey that spans decades and continents a journey that includes tragedy and remarkable discovery. Its owner was geared Berliner. He's the father of NPR's early Berliner who picks up the story from here. Fifteen years ago, a museum archivist from Berlin came to my dad's apartment in New York. Yes for favor. Did he have something anything from when my dad was a kid growing up in Berlin? When he was here, he said, you know, we have exhibits and at the exhibits. What people really want is something personally, do you have anything? And I don't know. That'd be lies. What I had. I had a little monkey. He showed me the monkey. And I said that is an amazing amazing subject. That's Aubrey Pomeranz the archivist from the Jewish museum. Berlin, the toy monkey is pretty beat up its firs frayed one of its hands is completely missing. And I remember him looking at me and saying you'd like to have it for the museum, wouldn't you? And I said to him geared. It's such a personal object. It's it's it's an object which has so much meaning and is filled with the motion for you. I'd never ask you to give it to the museum said, you know, what I'll think about it. And he did think about it. It wouldn't be easy to give up the monkey the most intimate object from his childhood.

"Prior to his death that secret code with both his wife as well as numerous friends, and the idea was that if he was able to break through the Vale that separates this world in the next world that he would deliver to them the secret code, and they would know that. In fact, he was able to break through and communicate with the living and so two Dini how this say on every year on the anniversary of his death for ten years. And finally at the end of ten years she decided that she was done attempting to contact him. And she needed to move on mentally she passed the torch to his brother THEO who is better known as hard dean who was another escape artist. And he and Harry Houdini worked together for many years and Hardine led the fancies himself for many years and when her dean stop doing, so. Dances were led by Bill Radnor. And then now Bill has passed that tradition onto his son who still runs the today. So that'll be held at the Jewish museum is really a direct lineage from Beth the year after Dini died until present day to contact the spirit of Houdini on the anniversary of his death. One of the things that interest me reading about Harry Houdini and seeing this wonderful Zib it again, if you've just joined us, there's an ongoing beautiful museum show curated by our current guests. David London who is a magician and entertainer, and he has helped the Jewish museum of Maryland curate, the show called inescapable the life and legacy of Harry Houdini which runs through January twenty first twenty nineteen and again for more information, you can go to their website Jewish museum MD dot org during the time that. Houdini was alive, and the spirit is organizations around the world, particularly in America were so active the scientific American had a contest, and I read somewhere that the prize money was greater than the Nobel prize. And it was in order to show that medium mystic contact with the deceased was possible. Talk to us about that. I mean, that's such a public because I think now about, you know, things at Princeton and other institutes that are showing the way in which mass consciousness works behind the scenes, and it's very much that much of what was considered magic is is an affect of consciousness. Sure. So. Yeah. Challenge. The interesting thing is that in some regards. Scientists are were much easier to this fee with this update practices than even everyday people. Because they they have. Develop tools of logic that they use and subverting those sorts of logic are often the magician greatest abilities. And so the scientific American challenge was offered forward than they actually had a medium new Marjorie who they believed was genuine whether the real deal, and they were getting ready to award her the money and Houdini caught wind of this and says, oh, martyr -absolutely, not genuine. Not the real deal and Houdini ended up exposing him writing a book, exposing the methods of Marjorie once again, what's important to keep reminding was a complete and total skeptic. I think part of it wanted to believe, and I believe that contact was possible. And I think that he was just so he was so against fraud. The septic practices. Who prey on people who were mourning the loss of their loved ones that he really became a warrior to fight fraud. So so that scientific American money was never awarded because of Houdini is efforts. But.
