Baxt Lecture

The Baxt Lecture Series began in October, 2013 and has included such topics as:  FDR and the Jews; History of Antisemitism; A Personal History from the St. Louis; Providence Jewish Community and the Rise of Hitler; Berlin After the Holocaust.

The Baxt Lecture Series is funded by a generous endowment from the late Victor Baxt with very kind additions to the endowment by the late Gussie Baxt.  The purpose of the series is to bring Holocaust education to the greater Rhode Island community.  The Baxt Lecture occurs annually and is hosted by the Cranston Public Library, Sockanosset Cross Branch.
