Five times a year, the Shared Learning Association of Chapel Hill is pleased to present guest lectures, free and open to the public–now at our new location at 105 Market St., in Southern Village, in the meeting room facilities of the Christ United Methodist Church.
This month, on Thursday, January 24th, at 11:15 a.m. our presenter is Dr. Gerhard Weinberg, William Rand Kenan, Jr. Emeritus Professor of History at UNC who will speak on “Ending Germany’s Democracy; Establishing Hitler’s Dictatorship.” We are fortunate to have as our lecturer on this topic a person who not only spent his first ten years living in Germany during the Nazi takeover but has spent a long lifetime as a distinguished scholar studying, teaching and lecturing on the subject of Nazi Germany and World War II. At a time when many believe that American democracy is in danger, it will be instructive to hear Dr. Weinberg discuss an instance where democracy did disappear into totalitarian dictatorship.
Dr. Weinberg’s lecture will begin at 11:15 a.m. in Rooms 3 & 5 in the 105 Market St. building just across Sumac Rd. from the Christ United Methodist Church. For those who are accustomed to our public Lindgren Lectures being held on Fridays, please note that at our new location, we will be holding these lectures on the 4th THURSDAYS of the month–this month, on Thursday, January 24th. Parking is available in numerous places: the lot directly behind the 101-105 Market St. buildings, the Church’s lot on the other side of the Church proper, street parking nearby, and the $2/day Park-and-Ride lot just down Sumac Rd.
