POSTPONED DUE TO COVID – Mengele: Unmasking the “Angel of Death”
This event has been postponed due to Covid and will be rescheduled.
Historian David G. Marwell will talk about his recent book on Josef Mengele, in which he strips away the myths that have attached themselves to the Auschwitz doctor and replaces what is a frightening caricature with an perhaps even more unsettling picture of the human being that he was.
Dr. Marwell has had a distinguished career in public history. He spent nine years at the US Department of Justice, where, as Chief of Investigative Research, he conducted research in support of the investigation and prosecution of Nazi war criminals in the United States. As a part of this effort, he played major roles in the Klaus Barbie and Josef Mengele investigations and helped to author the two major reports that resulted. In 2000, Marwell was appointed Director & CEO of the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City. He is the author of MENEGLE: Unmasking the Angel of Death.
Presented by the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education and Union Station Kansas City in support of the exhibition Auschwitz: Not long ago. Not far away.
