Oral history interview with Irene Hutton
Irene Hutton discusses her family history in Germany; the lives of assimilated Jews in prewar Germany; different views on what is means to be Jewish among Jews; her experience with American antisemitism; and her first postwar trip back to Germany where at the Frankfurt airport she was “struck dumb” and lost the ability to speak German as a reaction to perceived German arrogance.
Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.
