The Holocaust and Genocide Studies Project at Portland State University, the Oregon Jewish Museum And Center for Holocaust Education and the Harold Schnitzer Family Program in Judaic Studies at PSU are thrilled to welcome Dr. Christopher Browning to Portland State University.

Among Dr. Browning’s many acclaimed publications are Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101, The Final Solution in Poland; Fateful Months: Essays on the Emergence of the Final Solution; The Path to Genocide, in 1992, Nazi Policy, Jewish Workers, German Killers. and Remembering Survival: Inside a Nazi Slave-Labor Camp. He has given witness testimony in the trial of alleged Nazi perpetrators for the Canadian Department of Justice, the Australian Commonwealth Office of Public Prosecution, and the British War Crimes Branch as well as acting as a featured member of the defense in the infamous Irving vs. Lipstadt Libel case in 2000.

Dr. Browning’s lecture on Tracy Strong Jr. and the Humanitarian response to the refugee crisis in France during World War II is directly applicable to the global crisis we find ourselves facing presently. We learn here at Portland State University that our educations are intersectional, that we learn from each other every day.

We hope you join us in welcoming Dr. Christopher Browning to the Portland State University Campus.
