Saunt will explore the history of Indian removal in the context of other mass deportations in the 19th and 20th centuries, looking specifically at the US-sponsored expulsion of the Indian population in the 1830s, known as the “Trail of Tears,” when some 46,000 members of multiple Indian nations were forcibly moved from their ancestral homelands and driven westward. This removal of entire populations created something of a model for future actions by colonial empires around the world, including the infamous deportations of World War II. Notoriously, during the Nazi conquest of Eastern Europe, Hitler equated “indigenous inhabitants,” with “Indians,” and declared, “the Volga must be our Mississippi.” Sponsored by the Siegal Lifelong Learning Program of Case Western Reserve University and is co-sponsored by Beth El – The Heights Synagogue.
