“Average German Citizens speak Truth to Power”
Thursday, September 24, 12:00 PM -1 PM
In the Nazi terror state, the law made the utterance of a true statement about the Holocaust, atrocities, corrupt leaders or the course of the war, a criminal act punishable by imprisonment or death. In such a climate of fanaticism, denunciation, terror courts, and concentration camps, what made average citizens, despite the risks, speak truth to power? This presentation will consider the stories of average Germans whose conscience compelled them to speak out against the regime, even when speaking or writing a few truthful sentences could cost the ultimate price.
