Doherty Presents Hollywood and Hitler: The back story, at Drew University, Nov. 13

In the last years of the 20th century, Hollywood was big on causes.

But in the 1930s, American cinema was virtually silent on one of history’s most urgent moral issues: The rising persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany.

Presenting at the daylong conference, Hollywood and Nazi Germany, 1933-1945, Stories Told/Stories Untold, Professor Doherty, author of Hollywood and Hitler, 1933-1939, will delve deeper into this complex story with a panel of experts at Drew University in Madison on Thursday, Nov. 13, 2014.
