Fear and Hitler's Instant Subversion of Freedom

Fritz Stern University Professor Emeritus, Columbia University
Craig R. Whitney Assistant Managing Editor, The New York Times

Historian Fritz Stern will provide his thoughts on Hitler’s transformation of Germany into a one-party dictatorship in approximately four months. Does this still classic instance of subverting the rule of law and effectively ending all public decency bear lessons for democracies in less dire conditions than had been the case ofWeimar’s end? Please join us for the second meeting of a new series hosted in collaboration with the NationalHistoryCenterfeaturing prominent historians who will examine the events and times that shaped foreign policy as we know it today.
