Hitler and the Decisions for the Final Solution: Christopher Browning


Historians have long debated Hitler’s role in the decision-making process that led to the Final Solution. Christopher Browning will consider documents that came to light after the fall of communism and the opening of East European archives in 1989. He argues there were two incremental decision- making processes. The first, which reached closure in July 1941, sealed the fate of Soviet Jews, while the second (October 1941), sealed the fate of European Jews.

Co-presented by the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation at Monash University.
