Hitler and The Decisions For The Final Solution
Generously Sponsored by Lenore and Win Gerson.

Dr. Browning is one of the most distinguished scholars of the Holocaust currently working, famous both for his groundbreaking “Ordinary Men” and his epic “Origins of the Final Solution.”

His research focuses on Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. He has written extensively about three issues: first, Nazi decision- and policy-making in regard to the origins of the Final Solution; second, the behavior and motives of various middle- and lowerechelon personnel involved in implementing Nazi Jewish policy; and thirdly, the use of survivor testimony to explore Jewish responses and survival strategies.

A book signing and reception will follow the lecture.
