Special Events at the Department of German and Russian at UVM

The Harry H. Kahn Memorial Lecture is a very special annual event for the Department of German and Russian at the University of Vermont, given in honor and memory of its long-time professor and former chairperson, Harry H. Kahn. The inaugural Harry H. Kahn Memorial Lecture was given in April 1990 by Professor Harry Zohn (Brandeis University) on the topic "A Cultural Tale of Two Cities: The Jews of Vienna and Prague." Four volumes of essays from these lectures (in five-year increments) have been published and are available through the Department of German and Russian, UVM.
