A riveting speaker, Professor Peter Hayes’ latest book Why? Explaining the Holocaust provides us with, as one reviewer wrote, “… judicious, thoughtful and balanced answers to difficult and often inflammatory questions.”
Professor Peter Hayes is the chair of the Academic Committee of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, Professor of History and German, and the Theodore Zev Weiss Holocaust Educational Foundation Professor Emeritus of Holocaust Studies at Northwestern University, where he received numerous awards for teaching. He holds degrees from Bowdoin, Oxford, and Yale and is the author or editor of twelve books and some seventy articles or book chapters.
His publications include prize-winning works on German corporations and the Holocaust; The Oxford Handbook of Holocaust Studies (co-edited with John Roth); How Was It Possible?: A Holocaust Reader; and Lessons and Legacies: The Meaning of the Holocaust in a Changing World.
