Though the nature of Nazi-occupied Germany and the holocaust is grim, Dr. Christopher R. Browning hasn't shied away from becoming an expert in the field. A history professor at UNC Chapel Hill, Browning has previously released three award-winning books including Ordinary Men, The Path to Genocide and The Origins of the Final Solution. In order to pen these works, he even served as a witness at trials of accused Nazi criminals. Sounds intense, right?
Browning’s latest book, titled Remembering Survival: Inside a Nazi Slave Labor Camp takes an insightful look into factory slave laborers in Poland. For folks interested in learning more, he'll also be presenting a lecture, titled “Holocaust History and Survivor Testimony" at Temple Beth El tonight.
Free admission. March 29, 7:30 p.m. Temple Beth El, 5101 Providence Road. 704-366-1948. www.beth-el.com.
