Join us as bestselling historian Andrew Nagorski takes a fresh look at 1941, the year when Hitler’s miscalculations and policy of terror propelled Churchill, FDR, and Stalin into a powerful new alliance. In his lecture Nagorski illuminates the actions of the major characters of this pivotal year as never before, and reveals how 1941 set the end of the Holocaust in motion.
