Event Details

Part of the Program for Jewish Civilization's Spring 2014 Lecture Series.

Dr. Wendy Lower is the John K. Roth Professor of History at Claremont McKenna College.

Lower will present on her new book, Hitler's Furies, a finalist for the National Book Award. Drawing from wartime documents, postwar trials, private letters, diaries and interviews, she will discuss outstanding cases of women who became direct witnesses, accomplices, and perpetrators of the Holocaust. In the colonial outposts of the Nazi East, ordinary German women were an integral part of the ruling elite, and possessed extreme power over the lives of Jews and other victims of the Holocaust. Lower examines what some of these women chose to do with this new-found power during the war and how they distorted their criminal behavior after the war.

A light lunch will be served. RSVP is requested.
