Americans and the Holocaust Lunch and Learn
October 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Holocaust history raises important questions about what Europeans could have done to stop the rise of Nazism in Germany and its assault on Europe’s Jews. Questions also must be asked of the international community, including the United States. What did the US government and the American people know about the threats posed by Nazi Germany? What responses were possible? And when?
This course examines the motives, pressures, and fears that shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war, and genocide.
