Thursday, May 11, 2017 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
A German historian with a current research interest in preventing the rise of authoritarianism, will give a talk on Julius Streicher's Der Stuermer newspaper, which served as a propaganda organ for
the Nazi Party. The paper not only spread lies about German Jews and communists/socialists, but it was also made widely accessible to the German population (available to read for free in public
display cases called Stuermerkasten). The paper's reach was vast and its "articles" were simplistic, hostile, and frequently fabricated.
