6:30 PM - The Holocaust: Our Duty to Remember - But What?      


Location:  
Contact:        
Description:  After almost two generations, we arrived at the point where memory becomes history, and our memories are already dimming and in need of a refresher. This presentation provides historical context of the event in Nazi Germany, the reasons behind the Nazi regime's rise to power, and it sheds light on the background against which the Pogrom Night, 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.

Michael (“Mick”) Grzonka came from Germany to the US in 1996. A Ph.D. chemist by trade he applied scientific, bilingual research techniques to Martin Luther, his times and his writings. He is the author of a book on the German Reformation titled "Martin Luther and His Times." He is also the author of a successful series of Group Study Guides that present key texts of the German Protestant Reformation in a format that enables religious groups to study Martin Luther “in his own words.”
