‘Americans and the Nazi Threat: What Did Georgians Know?’

November 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

While media around the country provided frequent and vivid accounts of rising Nazi brutality in Europe, Americans focused inward in the 1930 and ’40s. Step back in time with Museum experts to explore headlines, reactions, and artifacts from that time period in Georgia, including news articles unearthed by volunteer citizen historians. Panelists also will discuss actions taken within local communities, including demonstrations, letters to the editor, and petitions calling for action.

Panelists:

Alexis Scott, publisher emerita, Atlanta Daily World

Derrick Angermeier, transnational historian, Ph.D. candidate, University of Georgia

David Klevan, educational outreach specialist, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Moderator:

Dr. John Morrow Jr., professor, department of history, University of Georgia

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is pleased to co-present this program with The Temple, The General Muir, Eternal Life-Hemshech and the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust.
