Death of a Tyrant: The World of Adolf Hitler

Tuesday 30.04.2024


79 years ago on the 30th of April, Adolf Hitler committed suicide, but the impact of the evil he unleashed is still with us today. Trudy Gold asks, what were the ideas and forces that created the monster? In this lecture, she examines how easily the democratic process was overturned to create a totalitarian regime ruled through the iron will of a man committed to creating a Germanic Empire based on war, race and bloodline.
