From the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld to dancing Nazis on Broadway, from
Iranian cartoons that deny the Holocaust to the iconic documentary
Paper Clips, the Holocaust is etched in the popular consciousness. Is
there a danger of Holocaust fatigue? Is the tragedy becoming
trivialized and losing its significance? What will happen after the
Holocaust survivor community disappears? Join distinguished writers
and intellectuals for a conversation about the Holocaust and its place
in the modern world.

Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust. John K. Roth
is the founding director of the Center for the Study of the Holocaust,
Genocide and Human Rights at Claremont McKenna College. His most
