Inside the Mind of a Nazi Perpetrator: The Search for the Rosenberg Diary
Public Program

A page from Nazi ideologue Alfred Rosenberg’s diary. US Holocaust Memorial Museum

Alfred Rosenberg’s ideas, writings, and speeches became a formative part of Nazi ideology and the pursuit of Lebensraum, or living space, for the German people. After a relentless 17-year search for Rosenberg’s diary, the Museum shares the significance of this recent acquisition to its permanent collection by taking you into the mind of a major Nazi ideologue, who was a close confidant of Adolf Hitler and instrumental in the “Final Solution.”

For additional information about the program, please contact Museum's Mid-Atlantic Regional Office at 202.488.0420 or ccampbell@ushmm.org.
