Peter Hayes, “Why?: Explaining the Holocaust”

Presented in partnership with the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center and Jewish Federation of St. Louis

Despite the outpouring of books, movies, and memorials devoted to the Holocaust, a coherent explanation of why such ghastly carnage erupted from the heart of civilized Europe still seems elusive even seventy years later. While responding to the questions he has been most frequently asked by students over the decades, world-renowned Holocaust historian and professor Peter Hayes brings a wealth of scholarly research and experience to bear on conventional, popular views of the history. Hayes weaves together stories and statistics to heart-stopping effect. “Why?” is an authoritative, groundbreaking exploration of the origins of one of the most tragic events in human history.
