Lee M. Roberts, associate professor of German studies at Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW), will present his lecture "Reloading the Canon: Literature as a Weapon in the Prelude to the Holocaust," Thursday, November 7, at 7:30 p.m. at Congregation Achduth Vesholom (5200 Old Mill Road, Fort Wayne, 260-744-4245).

During his presentation, Roberts will review the current state of research on Nazi book burnings. This lecture is made possible by the generous support of the IPFW Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies (IHGS).

IHGS recently recognized the scholarship of Roberts and Ann Livschiz, associate professor of history at IPFW, for their contributions to Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Livschiz will also speak at Congregation Achduth Vesholom in December about her research on the memory of the Holocaust in the territory of Belorussia.
