Lowe Family Lecture Series: Totalitarianism, Dissent and Democratic Institutions

This lecture series, made possible by The Lowe Family Holocaust and Genocide Education Endowment, is designed to foster understanding, and to disseminate knowledge, about the causes and conditions that foster genocides, including the Holocaust and to generate public awareness about the danger of authoritarian, totalitarian and nationalistic regimes to the future of humanity.
