Senior Historian of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to Speak on Gentile Children in the Nazi State
Monday, July 19, 2021
1- 2 p.m.
Dr. Patricia Heberer Rice, the Senior Historian at the Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., will give a presentation on “Children in the Nazi State and Party Organizations”. Contrary to many popular histories, she will show that the story of millions of Gentile children was not mainly one of uniformity and conformity, but of divergence and contradiction. Her Zoom-based lecture will take place on Monday, July 19, from 1 to 2 p.m. EST. Organized by the Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Peace Studies, this program is part of this year's week-long 19th Annual Martin and Doris Rosen Summer Symposium on "Remembering the Holocaust."
