Meet the Author: Bradley W. Hart
|Location||Holocaust Museum Houston|
|Date||Thu, Oct 14, 6:00pm - 7:00pm|
Hitler’s American Friends by Bradley W. Hart examines the strange terrain of Nazi sympathizers, non-intervention campaigners, and other voices in America that advocated on behalf of Nazi Germany in the years before World War II. These homegrown antagonists sought to protect and promote Hitler, leave Europeans (especially European Jews) to fend for themselves, and elevate the Nazi regime. Some of these sympathizers were Americans of German descent who joined the Bund, whose leadership dreamed of installing a stateside Fuhrer; some were Midwestern Catholics like Father Charles Coughlin, whose popular radio program broadcast antisemitic tirades; some were members of Congress who used their mailing privileges to distribute German propaganda. Celebrity pilot Charles Lindbergh ended up speaking for them all at the America First Committee. Hart draws attention to the extent of antisemitic agitation in the US during a critically important period.
Bradley W. Hart is an Associate Professor at California State University, Fresno.
