On December 6, 1987 250,000 people gathered at the Washington National Mall in support of millions of persecuted Soviet Jews hoping for freedom. Demonstrations took place around the world, and especially on the Tulane campus where several major rallies were held and a sympathy hunger strike involving students and faculty alike. Within a year many of the "Refuseniks" were given their freedom as massive liberalized changes occured in the USSR.
This Tuesday at 7pm in Freeman Auditorium the Jewish Studies Department will welcome Jerry Goodman, founding director of the National Conference on Soviet Jewry, and a central organizer of the Washington rally. All are welcome with refreshments to follow.
