Coming to Terms with the Holocaust

February 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

$75

This series of illustrated lectures probed the deep roots, proximate causes, methods, personalities, and principal events which created The Holocaust.
As the most extensively documented genocide in history – and the most intensively investigated, interrogated, and debated – The Holocaust in Europe 1933-1945 has much to teach us about hatred, demagoguery, impersonal violence, state-sponsored murder on an industrial scale, and ourselves. This seminar will address many complex and charged questions.

The objectives of this course are both academic and cathartic: to enable participants of any nationality, faith, or persuasion to come to terms with The Holocaust through information, analysis, public discourse, and private reflection.
