Germany in Crisis: WWI, a Treaty and the Emergence of Hitler’s Genocidal Antisemitism

Monday, April 17 - 7 p.m. (Central Time) Zoom Conference

Among the most vocal objectors to the Treaty of Versailles, Adolf Hitler saw WWI and the Treaty as the apex of the most dangerous do-or-die crisis in more than half a millennium. Join us on the centennial of Hitler’s 1923 Versailles speech for a lecture with Professor Thomas Weber (professor of history and international affairs at the University of Aberdeen and visiting fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University) as he explores how Hitler identified Jews as the originators of the post-war crisis, and in the process turned toward genocidal antisemitism. Based on new research published in mid-April 2023.
