Friends of Scarsdale10583 and local Cornell alumni are invited to attend the Twelfth Annual Wolleman Family History Lecture on May 26th at Lake Isle Country Club. Cornell History professor Vicki Caron will provide a look at Catholic anti-Semitism in France in the late 19th-early 20th century and its role in the creation of the modern anti-Semitic movement. She will also discuss positive moments of Catholic-Jewish interaction, including the rise of a philo-Semitic movement and attempts at mutual understanding.

Her major publications include: Between France and Germany: The Jews of Alsace-Lorraine, 1871-1918 (1988), Uneasy Asylum: France and the Jewish Refugee Crisis, 1933-1942 (1999) and Jewish Emancipation Reconsidered: The French and German Models, co-edited with Michael Brenner and Uri R.
