Rosenblum's lecture explored how persons with disabilities were stripped of their status as German citizens, laying the groundwork for mass murder under Hitler.

The lecture was covered by the Tribune-Democrat"

“Rosenblum will appeal to many people and attract a broad audience, especially after the success of having Mr. (Judah) Samet speak last week, it’s really made people more aware that there’s more to learn than just the exhibit itself,” said Deb Winterscheidt, director of development and members services for Johnstown Area Heritage Association.
