High School, College or Synagogue Venues

Rick Landman uses his life stories to focus on LGBT HISTORY and HOLOCAUST STUDIES at:

LGBT Pride Shabbat Services, Yom HaShoah Programs, Kristallnacht Programs from his personal perspective.

You should also check the ONE MAN SHOW for a more entertaining venue to hear the stories. These programs are appropriate for high school and college students. These can either be incorporated into a course curriculum as part of a special program for diversity or civil rights, or as a means of focusing on LGBT history.

LGBT Studies and History Program This program can either focus on the American LGBT Rights Movement History or what happened to the Homosexual Community during the Nazi era and the Roots of the Modern LGBT Movement starting in Germany with Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld. There is a more academic talk which covers LGBT History from Napoleon to Kim Davis in 60 minutes; while other talks use Rick's life experiences to focus on post World War II history. There is also a special program for High School students where Rick will relate stories about the history and will focus on what it was like coming out as a teenager in the 1960's. His story can be incorporated into the curriculum or as part of a "Gay-Straight Alliance" Program. This can also be incorporated into religious programs such as a LGBT Pride Shabbat program. For examples, see below.

In November 2016, Rick Landman spoke at the annual Kristallnacht Service at CBST for 5 minutes about the Jewish Refugee Internment Camp at Oswego New York, which was created towards the end of World War II for about 900 displaced European Jews, who were interned under the threat of being returned back to Germany after the war's conclusion.

Two Gestapo agents in green Bavarian garb rang the doorbell at his family's apartment at 5 a.m. in the morning. His aunt (who was to die a few years later in the camps) answered the door.
