Why did ordinary people choose to follow Hitler? It remains one of the many haunting questions  asked in the aftermath of the Holocaust. How is it that millions of people came to accept and  support the tenets of a racist ideology that drove Hitler’s quest for power in 1933, colored  everything in the Third Reich, and eventually led to a genocide of unprecedented scale? It was a  following that transformed him, however briefly, into one of the most powerful leaders in the  world. 

Robert Gellately’s Hitler’s True Believers posits that Hitler became a kind of representative figure  for ideas, emotions, and aims that he shared with thousands, and eventually millions, of true  believers who were of like mind. 

Join us for a thought-provoking conversation with award-winning novelist Robert Gellately as we  strive to understand the ideologies that propelled Hitler to power, those who became his true  believers, and how these strategies relate to today.
