Adolf Hitler: four-week series

Community Room

Join us for week one of a four-week series on Adolf Hitler.

Adolf Hitler remains one of the most frightfully interesting characters. His name has become synonymous with torture, brutality and murder. Beyond that, he symbolizes a national forfeiture of democratic ideals and high-cultural and societal standards, when a people prostitute their faith in themselves to indulge their need for a hero, a larger-than-life figure who will lead them into Valhalla. Hitler, a modern day deity of hatred who was everything to some and in the end proved nothing to all, is a warning sign for those ready to follow the teachings of a false prophet. Such is the essence of Adolf Hitler, Fuhrer of the Third Reich.
