 The “Aryanization” of Jewish property in Nazi Germany and How German Memory Politics Are Challenged Today

Lecture by Professor Hanno Balz, PhD Johns Hopkins University

Wednesday November 29th at 7PM 

Professor Hanno Balz joins us from Johns Hopkins University to examine how the persecution of German Jews escalated between 1933 and 1943. As a German historian, Professor Balz has researched the “Aryanization” of Jewish houses and business properties during this timeframe, as well as how non-Jewish neighbors and Nazi party officials benefitted from this large-scale robbery. During his lecture, he will also discuss the challenges of selective memory on this topic in Germany today, and examine the backlash emanating from the re-emerging populist right.
