History with a Future: Ben Goossen '13
Start Date: 9/7/2017Start Time: 4:30 PM

Event Description:

Researching the Nazis from Swarthmore to Paraguay

Please join us in welcoming back Ben Goossen ‘13! Ben will take you through the experiences at Swarthmore that helped shape his decision to pursue a Ph.D. at Harvard University. A History and German Studies double major, and four time recipient of the Swarthmore College Libraries' A. Edward Newton Award, Ben will discuss his new book, Chosen Nation: Mennonites and Germany in a Global Era (Princeton University Press, 2017). 

Chosen Nation tells the story of a Christian religious group's entanglement with German nationalism through Hitler's Third Reich and the Holocaust. Goossen will share from his experiences researching this history of complicity and cover-up, a journey that began at Swarthmore College and led to Old World Europe, seized Nazi archives, and a remote "religious state" in rural Paraguay. 

Talk will be held in the McCabe Library Atrium. Light refreshments will be served.
