PLU PRESENTS: Hitler’s American Friends: Political Extremism and Nazi Sympathizers in the 1930s
May 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Presented by Dr. Bradley W. Hart, Associate Professor, California State University, Fresno
This talk will examine the extremist groups that threatened American democracy during the Second World War. Most Americans remember the years as a period of national unity and shared sacrifice, but In reality, the United States was deeply divided, with far-right groups advocating an American version of Nazi Germany. This event will look at how the country’s leaders ultimately ensured that Hitler’s American friends were defeated.
This event is free and open to the public.
