Book Signing, and Discussion by Timothy Snyder
Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture
6500 S. Pulaski Rd., Chicago, IL 60629

In his new book, BLOODLANDS: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin (Basic Books; October 12, 2010), award-winning historian Timothy Snyder astutely connects the interests, perceptions, and aims of Hitler and Stalin with the crimes that their regimes committed to offer a new understanding of the mass killing that took place in Eastern Europe between 1933 and 1945. “The utopian goals and the strategic interaction of the Soviet and Nazi regimes help to explain these mass murders, which taken together are the worst calamity in the history of the western world,” notes Snyder. “But it is the perspectives of the victims that make these atrocities resonant and real.”

This project is partially supported by Grants from the Illinois Arts Council, City Arts Program 3 City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, the Illinois Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Illinois General Assembly, the Lithuanian Foundation, and the ECPC.
Event Cost: $5
