This will be a pre-dinner for the students interested in going to see The Danish Girl in Augusta as a part of their Pride Film Festival.


In this lecture, Eric D. Weitz, dean of humanities and arts and distinguished professor of history at The City College of New York, argues that we need to understand the Holocaust not as a singular, unique event but as one of a number of genocides carried out by states in the 20th century. To compare does not mean that everything is the same. A comparative approach enables us to highlight similarities as well as differences among different cases, deepening our understanding of the tragic phenomenon of modern genocides.
