Summary Sentence: TIJS Evening Lecture featuring Timothy Snyder: Housum Professor of History

Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

Timothy Snyder, Housum Proffesor of History, Yale University and author of Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitlet and Stalin, will be speaking on "The Holocaust as a Political History".

How could the Holocaust have happened? Hitler conceived of the Jews as a planetary threat, but only war in a particular part of the world allowed the mass killing to begin. This lecture explores the world as Hitler saw it and seeks to demonstrate how the destruction of states permitted new forms of politics that enabled, to a shocking degree, the realization of that vision.
