Auschwitz: An Historical, Moral, and Theological Reflection

December 12, 2014

by William Edgar

Dr. Edgar lectures for the Forum of Christian Leaders on the significance of the largest and most destructive of the death camps during World War II. After setting forth the facts and dates, he looks at the immediate context in European history, hoping to gain understanding of the possible causes leading up to the death camps. Of special importance is the background of Germany between the two great wars, and the rise of the extreme right, with its particular agenda against the Jews.
