Professor Jarausch’s lecture will be based on his latest work Reluctant Accomplice: A Wehrmacht Soldier’ s Letter from the Eastern Front. The book was recently reviewed in American Jewish World News, where reviewer Neal Gendler noted, “It’s difficult or impossible to summon sympathy for a soldier in Hitler’s army — even one with no hatred for Jews — but the letters home of Konrad Jarausch do peel away stereotypes.”
Konrad H. Jarausch is the Lurcy Professor of European Civilization at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is also Senior Fellow at the Center for Contemporary History in Potsdam and DAAD-Professor at the Freie Universitaet Berlin.
