Witness to History: Americans Abroad in Hitler's Europe


December 1, 2015, 7:00 p.m.

In order to understand why the Holocaust happened, it is vital to study the 1920s and 1930s, the years when the Holocaust could have been prevented. From the perspective of Americans who lived and worked in Berlin during Hitler's rise to power, this program will present a compelling glimpse of that period accompanied by rarely seen footage from the Museum's collections that provides new perspective on what was known, and questions why so many influential Americans ignored the warning signs.

This program is FREE of charge.
