The Use and Abuse of Hate: Nazi Anti-Semitism via ZOOM.Professor David Hamlin will discuss how the Nazis and their propaganda treated anti-Semitism as a way to explain a traumatic history, social misery, intra-German conflict and even the changing gender norms. This approach enabled the Germans to always see themselves as victims rather than perpetrators of hate and violence. The discussion also offers a method of explaining contemporary political developments. David will speak for about 45 minutes and accept questions from the attendees over Zoom.Candle lighting ceremony with Rabbi Bronstein, followed by speaker Professor Hamlin.See dedicated email, Weekly Calendar or Members side of the website for ZOOM link.This program is in place of Torah La’am regular Zoom session for grades 7-12.ALL BAS adults and teens are invited.________________________Professor David Hamlin is Chair of the History Department at Fordham University.
