The uniqueness of the Nazi Holocaust and what ordinary Germans thought about it
To mark the publication of the final part of his stunning masterwork on the most terrible years of the twentieth century, Richard Evans, newly appointed Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge University, comes to Bristol to talk about ‘The uniqueness of the Nazi Holocaust and what ordinary Germans thought about it’. Evans’ new book, The Third Reich at War, joins The Coming of the Third Reich and The Third Reich in Power, which have been praised for being the definitive accounts of the Nazi period. His lecture will be followed by questions and discussion.
Evans’ previous books include In Defence of History, Telling Lies about Hitler and the companions to The Third Reich at War, The Coming of the Third Reich and The Third Reich in Power. The Third Reich at War traces the rise and fall of the German military might against the background of the mobilisation of the ‘people’s community’ in the service of a war of conquest, racial subjugation and genocide. It creates a vivid picture of a society rushing headlong to self-destruction and taking a large part of Europe with it. Evans was a key witness in the Irving-Lipstadt trial.
