In the Holocaust era, countless ordinary people acted in ways that aided the persecution and murder of Jews and other targeted groups within Nazi Germany and across Europe. The Museum’s current special exhibition, Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration & Complicity in the Holocaust, examines one vexing question: what prompted average people to commit extraordinary crimes in support of the Nazi cause?

The seminal research of Dr. Christopher Browning, the author of Ordinary Men, and Dr. Wendy Lower, the author of Hitler’s Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields, will help to illuminate the universal qualities that manifested through some of the Holocaust’s most unlikely collaborators.

Speakers
Dr. Christopher Browning, Professor of History Emeritus, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and author of Ordinary Men

Dr. Wendy Lower, Acting Director of the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and author of Hitler’s Furies: German Women in the Nazi Killing Fields

Moderator Ralph Blumenthal, Award winning New York Times Journalist and non-fiction author
