HITLER’S FIRST WAR

OCTOBER 18, 2018 6:30PM

Scholars often argue World War I served as the perfect crucible for Hitler’s rise to power. Award-winning author Thomas Weber thinks otherwise. Join us as he discusses the dictator’s formative experiences as a soldier, demonstrating how and why he aggressively policed the myth of his wartime experiences. Examining Hitler’s political epiphany in 1919, Weber shows how the path from 1918-19 to Auschwitz was far less twisted than commonly believed. Presented in conjunction with the centennial exhibition Crucible: Life & Death in 1918. Presented in partnership with the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education and the National Archives at Kansas City. Book signing and sales following lecture. Cash bar and small plates begin at 6 p.m. FREE with RSVP | J.C. Nichols Auditorium

The Board of Directors of the Association of Holocaust Organizations strongly condemns Facebook for allowing its users to post expressions of Holocaust denial on its site. This action by Facebook validates and supports lies, hatred and antisemitism. We call upon Holocaust organizations around the world to publicly condemn Facebook for this policy.
