In his new book Why?, historian Peter Hayes explores what scholars know about the Holocaust, answering questions including: Why were Jews the primary victims? Why were Germans the instigators? Why did murder become the "Final Solution"? And, why didn’t the international community do more to help? Join us for a discussion with Hayes about the latest research and our evolving understanding of these crucial questions. The discussion will be followed by a book signing.
Peter Hayes is professor of history and German and Theodore Zev Weiss Holocaust Educational Foundation Professor of Holocaust Studies (emeritus) at Northwestern University. He also serves as chairman of the Museum’s Academic Committee.
