You are cordially invited to attend a seminar with Daniel Jonah Goldhagen.  After receiving his Ph.D. from Harvard, he taught in the Government and Social Studies departments there until deciding to devote himself full-time to writing.  He is best-known for Hitler’s Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust (1997), which became an international best-seller and won Germany’s triennial Democracy Prize.  The controversies sparked by this book over the complicity of the German people in the Holocaust have yet to end.  Among his other important works is A Moral Reckoning: The Role of the Catholic Church in the Holocaust and Its Unfulfilled Duty of Repair (2003).  His articles and columns on Jewish issues past and present have been published in newspapers and magazines all over the world.  He regularly appears as a commentator on national radio and television programs.  Both the New York Times Magazine and the New York Review of Books have published profiles on him.  He currently is completing a book on genocide in our time.
