Studying the History of NationalSocialism and the Holocaust

Panel-Discussion, DHI Washington

Research on the history of National Socialism and the Holocaust has spawned an ever increasing variety of new studies. The his­tory of everyday life, perpetrators, society, and Europe in a cross-border context; the impact of ideology, racism, and gender; and the postwar legacies have all added new dimensions to our un­derstanding of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. As a capstone to a two-day workshop on the current and future directions, topics, and methods relevant to this field, the GHI and the USHMM invite you to attend a panel discussion to present the findings to the public. Panelists Frank Bajohr (Institute of Contemporary History Munich/Center for Holocaust Studies), Christopher Browning (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), and Wendy Lower (Claremont McKenna College) will review the themes and issues raised by the workshop participants. A general discussion will follow the panelists’ presentations.

The event will be held at the German Historical Institute, 1607 New Hampshire Avenue NW (Directions). Please RSVP (acceptances only) by Tel. 202.387.3355, Fax 202.387.6437 or E-mail
