Once the Guns Fell Silent: Germany between Versailles and Hitler
Tuesday, July 16, 2019
5:30 pm-7:00 pm
Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room
The centennial of the Versailles Treaty offers an opportunity to reflect on its legacy. The years between the cessation of fighting in November 1918 and the ascent of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany in February 1933 were fraught. As things turned out, developments in Europe did not point to the aspired end of conflict. This was especially so in Germany, where the post-war years signaled a seemingly continuous struggle to make sense of politics, the economy, indeed of normal life. This lecture will concentrate on key years of post-war Germany (1918-1933), serving to provide a broader context and a better understanding of what ensued thereafter. Ironically, some of the conditions experienced in Germany may be seen reflected in other regions of the world and at different times, including our own.
