Forum: Protecting Our Democracy @ Queens Library Forest Hills | New York | United States

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Join us as CUNY Professor Benjamin Carter Hett gives us a look back at the mistakes made in Europe in the 1930s that led to the rise of dictatorships, fascism, and the Nazi movement under Adolph Hitler in Germany. By understanding why that democracy collapsed so quickly and completely, we can find resonance today as democracy is again under attack here and around the world. This forum introduces the Let’s Talk Democracy fall civics series, Can Democracy Survive?, taught by Queens College Professor Michael Krasner.
