“The ‘Citizen Other’: Citizenship Stripping in Nazi Germany and the United States” (US Holocaust Memorial Museum)

March 31 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Hitler’s government sought to violently redesign German society upon assuming power in 1933 by defining who belonged and who was excluded. During the same period, many in the United States saw America’s racial, religious, and ethnic identity in narrow and exclusive terms as well. In both Nazi Germany and the United States, leaders were determined to limit national belonging by denying civil rights and at times even stripping citizenship from those they sought to exclude. What were the similarities and differences between the two countries’ views of race, rights, and belonging? The event, the 2022 Meyerhoff Lecture, is hosted by the University of Idaho in collaboration with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, as part of an ongoing partnership between the museum and PNW colleges and universities.
