Holocaust Lecture Series to Begin Oct. 6 at UTD

Professor Robert S. Wistrich, Neuberger Chair of Modern European and Jewish History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and author of such books as Hitler and the Holocaust, Antisemitism: The Longest Hatred, and Nietzsche, Godfather of Fascism? On the Uses and Abuses of a Philosophy, will give a lecture entitled Hitler’s Years in Vienna – A Prologue to the Holocaust on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. in the Conference Center Auditorium at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD).

The following morning at 11 a.m., Professor Wistrich will discuss “I am Dynamite”: Friedrich Nietzsche, the Jews, and German Antisemitism, in the second floor conference room (Room GC 2.216) in the Green Center.

Professor Wistrich’s visit is a part of The Burton C. Einspruch Lecture Series sponsored by The Holocaust Studies Program of UTD’s School of Arts and Humanities. It continues the university’s long tradition of bringing world-prominent scholars to its campus and fulfilling the mission of the Holocaust Studies Program in teaching the importance of greater historical and moral awareness of what happened when the Third Reich shattered European society. That tragedy, more than one-half century ago, created shock waves that still exert an impact on our contemporary consciousness.
