The last installment of the 2018-2019 Holocaust Living History Workshop series will feature Christopher Browning on Wednesday, June 5. A recipient of the Yad Vashem International Book Prize for Holocaust Research in 2011, Browning is a professor emeritus at UNC Chapel Hill and an internationally recognized authority on Nazi policy and decision-making.

Every once in a while a book comes along that changes the way we think about major issues. More than 25 years ago, the publication of Christopher Browning’s “Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland” did just that. Meticulously researched and eloquently argued, “Ordinary Men” asserted that those who helped commit genocide during WWII were neither fanatical ideologues nor bloodthirsty beasts but simply ordinary men operating within the context of a vicious race war. These findings which draw on insights from social psychology transcend the merely historical and carry disturbing implications for human beings everywhere. In this talk, Browning revisits his pioneering book and discusses the evolution of perpetrator studies up to the present.
