The Holocaust and Propaganda: Connecting the Past to the Present
With survivor Margit Meissner
On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, this FREE webinar features Margit Meissner, who was only 11 years old when she heard a radio broadcast of one of Hitler’s speeches—her first encounter with Nazi propaganda. Join us to hear Meissner speak about her experiences before, during, and after World War II, including her daring escape from Paris on a bicycle as the Nazis invaded. Students will not only hear about wartime experiences, but why she still speaks today about the dangers of hate speech. Students will also have the opportunity to ask questions to Meissner and Museum educators.
This program is now full. The recording will be made available by January 30, 2017 on the Student Webinars archive page.
