Can Words Kill? Investigating Nazi Propaganda (9th grade and up) 
“Propaganda,” Adolf Hitler wrote in 1924, “is a truly terrible weapon in the hands of an expert.” During the subsequent two decades, Nazi leaders showed the world bold, new ways to use it.  


In this 1-hour conversation-style lecture, participants will go through the origins of Nazi propaganda, exploring how the Nazis made use of sophisticated technologies of their time to influence public opinion in Germany’s young democracy after World War I.  Together we will reflect on how Nazi propaganda led to mass murder and genocide during the Holocaust, and what lessons we can apply to today’s world.   


The 1994 Genocide in Rwanda (8th grade and up) 

What led to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda? During this 1-hour conversation-style lecture, participants will learn about the origins of the Hutu, Tutsi, and Twa and the effect of colonization. Together we will examine the escalation of animosity and violence between the groups, the use of media in the incitement of violence, and the path to justice and reconciliation in the aftermath.
