Professor Michael Marrus.
Wednesday, November 5, 2014
Join us as we welcome Professor Michael Marrus who shares the following:
This lecture will take us back seventy years, to the delirious events of the liberation of Paris commemorated last summer. Drawing upon films made at the time, Professor Marrus will point to a tragic oversight of those days — the Jews. Few people in France had any real idea of what we now call the Holocaust, and the pitiful return of a tiny remnant of those Jews who had been deported only deepened the confusion of the time. Tangled up with the story of collaboration, this misunderstanding persisted until the 1980s, when historical accounts started to shift and the full story began to be told.
