In 1930s Berlin the rights of Jews were systematically stripped away. A young Rabbi refused to be silent. His name was Joachim Prinz. Despite repeated arrests, he worked relentlessly to bolster the self-esteem of the German Jews and saved many lives by encouraging emigration from Germany before the dawning of WWII. Expelled by the Nazis in 1937, Prinz came to the United States where democracy had supposedly triumphed over bigotry and hatred, but was appalled by the racism he witnessed against African Americans. As Rabbi of Temple B'nai Abraham in Newark, NJ and later as President of the American Jewish Congress, Prinz became a leader of the civil rights movement. He worked to organize the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, and spoke before Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "I Have A Dream" speech, declaring, "bigotry and hatred are not the most urgent problem. The most urgent, the most disgraceful, the most shameful and the most tragic problem is silence."
