Where: Tuesday, October 16, 2007
When: Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 228, Multicultural Center
Ms. Stiller will discuss findings from her dissertation project, "The
'Volkstumspolitik' of the SS, 1939-1945." Her research focuses on the
RKVD's leading role in charting and carrying out Nazi racial policy in
Western Poland, Alsace-Lorraine, and Slovenia. She also will explore
the RuSHA Case of the Nuremberg Subsequent Proceedings. Her discussion
will reveal a deeper understanding of the 'Final Solution' and its
relation to the Germanization of living space and the National
Socialist "new order."
