Loyola hosts lecture with Holocaust Museum

October 31, 2008

Loyola University New Orleans welcomes Geoffrey Megargee, Ph.D., of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to present “A Blind Eye and Dirty Hands: The Wehrmacht Crimes in the East 1941-1945.” The lecture takes place Wednesday, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m., in Multimedia Room 2, in Monroe Library on Loyola’s main campus. It is free and open to the public.

Megargee is the author of four books on the Holocaust, including “War of Annihilation: Combat and Genocide on the Eastern Front, 1941” and “Inside Hitler’s High Command.” He is also the editor of the Holocaust Museum’s “Encyclopedia of Concentration, Death and Labor Camps.” He will discuss the German army’s involvement in the Holocaust.

The lecture is co-sponsored by the Loyola Department of History and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, which describes its mission to “advance and disseminate knowledge about this unprecedented tragedy; to preserve the memory of those who suffered; and to encourage its visitors to reflect upon the moral and spiritual questions raised by the events of the Holocaust as well as their own responsibilities as citizens of a democracy.”
