When: January 11, 2018 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Where: Jahn Room
Dr. David Cottter discusses the Allies' bitterly debated decision not to bomb the gas chambers in the rail lines leading to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Proponents of bombing continue to argue that such an action, while it might have killed some prisoners, could have slowed the killing operations and perhaps ultimately saved lives.
