Hannah Arendt: Authoritarianism, Activism, & Antisemitism [VIRTUAL]


Since 1995, the Historic Landmarks Preservation Center (HLPC), chaired by Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel, has installed more than 135 cultural medallions on buildings throughout the five boroughs of NYC where notable New Yorkers lived and worked.

HLPC is pleased to announce that it will dedicate a cultural medallion to honor the leading 20th-century political theorist Hannah Arendt at 370 Riverside Drive in Manhattan on December 16. To commemorate the installation, a panel of deeply informed speakers will also address the urgent, virulent issue of antisemitism:

This virtual event is free and open to the public; all are welcome to join us. registerFor more information about the HLPC Cultural Medallions program, please visit www.hlpcculturalmedallions.org.
