In 1939, the Christian Front was formed in response to a call from Father Charles Edward Coughlin to oppose the Popular Front, a communist organization. Members of the Christian Front were American Catholics who supported a pro-Nazi agenda. In 1940, the FBI alleged that members of the group were trying to install what they called a “temporary dictatorship” to end the influence of Jews and Communists, whom they considered identical, in the United States. . Charles Gallagher’s new book Nazis of Copley Square: The Forgotten Story of the Christian Front tells the story of the front and how it was ultimately dismantled.

Join the museum and our travel circle for a virtual walking tour of Istanbul, home to the vast majority of Turkey’s 26,000 Jewish citizens. Istanbul’s Jewish community today is only a fraction of its size under Ottoman rule in the 16th and 17th centuries, when it was one of the most important Jewish centers in the world. Unlike Jews in much of Europe, Istanbul’s 500,000 Jews were allowed to practice all professions and could enter the Ottoman court. They excelled in commerce and were especially important leaders in medicine. Remnants of this era can still be seen in the Balat region, along the Golden Horn and in the Galata district of Beyoğlu, the centers of Jewish life in Istanbul. Our guide, Safak, will take us on a journey through time and into modern Jewish life in Istanbul. $36
