“Cleansing” Germany: Ideology, Space, and the Nazi Consolidation of Power

October 8 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

The Carolina Center for Jewish Studies is co-sponsoring an event with NC German Studies Seminars that will explore how antisemitic notions of a Germany infected by Jews immediately and forcefully instigated efforts to render Germany physically, symbolically, and rhetorically “judenrein” during the Nazi consolidation of power. Additionally, the discussion will be centered on the history behind the holocaust and the Nazi regime. People involved in the discussion include:

  • Teresa Walch: Assistant Professor of Modern European History at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Her book manuscript, Degenerate Spaces: The Coordination of Space in Nazi Germany, investigates the relationship between Nazi ideology and spatial practices between 1933-1945 and will be a part of the discussion.
  • Andrea Sinn: O’Briant Developing Professor and Associate Professor History will be the Moderator within the discussion
  • Christopher Browning: Frank Porter Graham Distinguished Professor Emeritus, will be commenting within the discussion as well.
