A Blind Eye and Dirty Hands: The Wehrmacht's Crimes

A Blind Eye and Dirty Hands: The Wehrmacht's Crimes

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

After the Second World War, a myth arose to the effect that the German military, the Wehrmacht, had been an essentially anti-Nazi institution that had fought honourably against overwhelming odds, albeit under criminal leadership. Thus, any crimes were the fault of Adolf Hitler, a small circle of fanatical yes-men around him, and Nazi organizations such as the SS. In reality, the Wehrmacht's leadership shared most of Hitler's goals and methods. The Wehrmacht launched a war of conquest and, especially in the east, aided and committed acts of genocide.

In this talk, Dr. Geoffrey P. Megargee (USHMM) will describe and explain the Wehrmacht's role in Nazi Germany's crimes.

In Other Minds, Peter Godfrey-Smith, a distinguished philosopher of science and a skilled scuba diver, tells a bold new story of how nature became aware of itself – a story that largely occurs in the ocean, where animals first appeared.
