    TBA

    “’The Idea of Eliminating the Leadership Would Not Let Me Rest’: Georg Elser's Attempted Assassination of Adolf Hitler in November 1939 and Its Aftermath”

    Lecture by Alan E. Steinweis, University of Vermont

    Alan E. Steinweis is Professor of History and the Raul Hilberg Distinguished Professor of Holocaust Studies at the University of Vermont. In this lecture, he will discuss the attempted assassination of Adolf Hitler by German cabinetmaker Georg Elser in 1939. Dr. Steinweis will examine several aspects of Elser’s story: the background and motivation of the would-be assassin (including the question of whether objections to the persecution of Jews played a role); the Nazi regime’s responses to the assassination attempt; the debate in postwar Germany over the propriety of tyrannicide; and the relatively late emergence of a commemorative culture around Elser and his act.
