Join Dr. Rebecca Carter-Chand, Acting Director of the Programs on Ethics, Religion, and the Holocaust at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, for a discussion of the Christian Church’s response to the rise of Nazism, particularly in the context of the long history of Christian anti-Judaism in Europe.
