“For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.” Elie Wiesel

Dr. Jeffery Herf gives lecture on his new book

The lecture, hosted by the National Archives at Kansas City and Midwest Center for Holocaust Education, is at 7 p.m. July 9 and will be held at the National World War I Museum, 100 W. 26th St., Kansas City. A free reception and exhibit viewing will precede this lecture from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the National Archives, 400 W. Pershing Road, Kansas City.

Herf’s talk will draw, in part, on his book, “The Jewish Enemy: Nazi Propaganda During World War II and the Holocaust,” which offers a close reading of key texts of the propaganda of the Nazi regime, including speeches by Hitler; essays and speeches by Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda; articles in the government controlled press and more.
