The Holocaust: Our Duty to Remember – But What?

April 8th, 2021 · No Comments · City Library, Events, Main Branch, Virtual Programs

Join the Manchester City Library on Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 6:30 PM for a virtual presentation via zoom of an important part of our shared global history.

This presentation by author and history buff Mick Grzonka provides historical context of the events in Nazi Germany, the reasons behind the Nazi regime’s rise to power, and it sheds light on the background against which the “Night of the Broken Glass”, and later the Holocaust, took place. The talk is organized around dispelling four common myths which, if allowed to stand uncorrected, would make it all-too-easy to dismiss the events of the 1930s and 1940s as irrelevant for today’s world. The talk will cover how the Nazi regime came about, and the reasons for its atrocious deeds. In particular, it will take a close look at how common, “normal” people were induced to contribute to the industrialized murder as which we must understand the Holocaust today.
