A week long series of events marking the 13th annual “Tolerance Week” in Sioux City begin on Monday.

Prinz was a young rabbi in Berlin in the 1930’s, who saw the civil rights of Jews being stripped away by the Nazis.
Expelled from Germany in 1937, Prinz came to the United States, where he witnessed racism against African Americans and realized the American ideal was not a reality for everyone.
Tuesday there are two events, beginning with an exhibit and luncheon at the Sioux City Public Museum:
OC…….attend the luncheon. :19
