Berger Holocaust Lecture: Jewish Responses to the Rise of Hitler

Join Professor Michael Brenner of American University for the annual Berger Family Holocaust Lecture. The challenges that Jews faced with the rise of the Nazi party in Germany remain relevant today amidst dramatic political and social changes in Europe and the United States. How did German Jews of different political and religious stripes respond to the rise of the Nazi threat from Hitler’s rise in the early 1920s to his final appointment as chancellor in 1933? When do we recognize political danger, and how do we react to it?
