Event description

Description

RSVP for the Leo Baeck Institute's Deutschlandjahr event in collaboration with the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education

A lecture by Professor Steven Wasserstrom.

Fake News in 1930’s Germany and Today

The rise to power of the Nazi Party in Germany in the 1930’s was amplified by institutionalized propaganda and suppression of truth. Today, challenges to free expression of truth are threatening democratic values in the U.S. and around the world. Following a lecture by Professor Steven Wasserstrom (Reed College) on the repression of truth through organized propaganda, Dr. William Weitzer (Leo Baeck Institute) and Dr. Friderike Heuer will join him on a panel to discuss from the similarities and differences between then and now.

Light refreshments to be served.

This event is part of the Year of German-American Friendship, initiated by the German Federal Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut, and supported by the Federation of German Industries (BDI).
