Ethics lecture on confronting national evils

Beamer-Schneider Lecture in Ethics & Civics at Case Western Reserve University

Susan Neiman of the Einstein Forum in Berlin will speak on "Learning from the Germans: Tarantino, Spielberg, and American Crimes," examining how 60 years of German attempts to deal with its Nazi past have produced a template for confronting national evils. In American culture, such confrontations have been rare, and are usually confined to the academy. The recent films of Tarantino and Spielberg provide a welcome - and very conscious - exception. Neiman will discuss the German experience, the differing reception of the films in Germany and America, and reflect on how Americans can begin to think about forging an identity in the face of our own torturous past.
