MPL Talks: The Origins of the Final Solution
We host a lot of programs at Mentor Public Library and it's hard to catch them all.
And sometimes you miss one you really wanted to see.
That's why we've started MPL Talks, where we post full programs online for you to watch at your convenience. It's not quite the same as being there. (For example, you don't get to ask questions.) But it's better than missing out.
MPL Talks begins with a program by Dr. John Foster—one of our reference librarians who also happens to have a doctorate in German history.
In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, he discussed the origins of the Nazi's Final Solution on Tuesday, Jan. 27.
How and why did Germany, the home of one of the more integrated Jewish populations in Europe, decide to systematically kill at least six million Jewish people? Watch and learn all about it.
