Meet Dr. Alon Confino, a professor of History at the University of Virginia and author of A World Without Jews: The Nazi Imagination from Persecution to Genocide. Dr. Confino will discuss his book which draws on an array of archives across three continents to propose a penetrating new assessment of one of the central moral problems of the twentieth century. The author explores how Germans came to conceive of the idea of a Germany without Jews. He traces the stories the Nazis told themselves—where they came from and where they were heading—and how those stories led to the conclusion that Jews must be eradicated in order for the new Nazi civilization to arise. As Germans imagined a future world without Jews, persecution and extermination became imaginable, and even justifiable. Book-signing after the lecture. Admission is $8 for non-members, $5 for members, seniors and students, but advance registration is required. Visit www.hmh.org/registerevent.aspx to RSVP online.
