Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia

During the first half of the 20th century, Europe produced two of the most tyrannical regimes in world history – the Nazi and Soviet dictatorships.  Both were products of a general crisis that gripped Europe during the years 1914-1945.  Together these two dictatorships were responsible for the deaths of over 60 million people.  On Wednesday, April 14, 2010 at Noon in Kent Library’s Sadie’s Place, Dr. David Cameron will discuss the nature of the Nazi and Soviet dictatorships.  Although it is commonly assumed that Nazism and Communism are polar opposites, Dr. Cameron will argue that the Nazi and Soviet dictatorships had much more in common than is often thought to be the case.  The presentation is open to all, and refreshments will be served.  For more information, please go to http://library.semo.edu/info/athenaeumspring2010.shtml.
