  1. Sadly, I don’t think the people who need to learn about how the history of pre-War Germany relates to what’s happening today will be interested in watching the lecture …

  2. John, fascinating. I even looked for evidence of the Bilsky famiy in Ancestry records, and learned lots more about them. Good for them !!!I think my interest was wetted by hearing of the sad passing away of Norman Jewison this week, who filmed Fiddler on the Roof, and one of the most hilarious flicks of all time, in my opinion, The Russians Are Coming The Russians Are Coming.

    I won’t wait for the U of T lecture, but I did read about pre-war Germany. And lots before this. Noted: Prequel, by Rachel Maddow, about how the far right grew and became powerful in the late 1930s in the US. Frankly, the possible re-election of the trumper and his crowd terrifies me. BT
