The Holocaust: History and Memory

Carroll Weinberg Memorial Lecture

Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 6:30 pm

The renowned historian Jeremy Black will discuss his new book The Holocaust: History and Memory, which does more than tell the story of the brutal mass slaughter of Jews during WWII; it explains how that genocide has been remembered and misremembered ever since. It is thus both a history of the Holocaust and a history of the histories of the Holocaust. Taking issue with generations of scholars who separate the Holocaust from Germany's military ambitions, Black demonstrates that Germany's war on the Allies was entwined with Hitler's war on the Jews. One of the Foreign Policy Research Institute's (FPRI's) most popular lecturers, he is the author of over 100 books on diplomatic and military history. He is a Professor of History at the University of Exeter in London, England and a Senior Fellow in FPRI's Center for the Study of America and the West.

Presented with the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI) in memory of Dr. Carroll Weinberg, friend to both FPRI and NMAJH.

Dr. Carroll Weinberg 
Carroll Weinberg was a good friend to both the Foreign Policy Research Institute and the National Museum of American Jewish History. A man of wide-ranging intellectual interests, Carroll was a long-time associate scholar of FPRI, and a ubiquitous presece - along with his wife Charlotte - at nearly all FPRI events, where his questions never failed to help illuminate the issues under discussion. A psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, his reserach and writing explored the psychological dimensions of suicide terrorism, torture, and authoritarianism. He was a good and gentle man who always took a deep interest in both our personal and professional lives. He will be sorely missed, and we are grateful to his wife Charlotte for allowing us this opportunity to honor him.
