Guest: Jessica Hammer, PhD, Assistant Professor of Human-Computer Interaction Institute, Mellon University, Co-creator of Rosenstrasse; Moyra Turkingon, Co-creator of Rosenstrasse, leader of War Birds game design collective, Unruly Designs If you’ve ever watched a film about Nazi Germany and thought, “I would have resisted. I’d have stood up to injustice, no matter how dangerous it got,” a new board game called Rosenstrasse will test your resolve. It’s a role-playing game that puts you in the shoes of people who participated in a historic protest on Rosenstrasse Street in 1943 Berlin.  Hundreds of Aryan women turned out day after day in the spring of that year to protest the incarceration of their Jewish husbands by the Nazis.
