      White Supremacy in America: What are its Links to the Nazi Past?

      The Center for Jewish Civilization at Georgetown University is pleased to announce a day-long conference entitled "Contemporary White Supremacy in America: What are its Links to the Nazi Past?" Held at the National Press Club, this forum seeks to examine how hate groups in the United States draw upon ideas, propaganda, recruiting techniques, and worldviews from the Nazi era. In what ways do extremists in this country invoke the anti-Semitic theories and practices of their Nazi forerunners? And in what ways do they diverge and/or offer new perspectives and tools for disseminating hatred of Jews and others? Join us and our slate of renowned scholars, diplomats, journalists, and practitioners as we try to make sense of the current extremist moment in the United States.  8:55 Welcoming Remarks Jacques Berlinerblau, Rabbi Harold White Professor of Jewish Civilization, Director, Center for Jewish Civilization, Georgetown University 9:00 Modern White Power Movements, the Holocaust, and Contemporary Anti-Semitism Lara Logan, Former Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent, CBS News Fr.
