July Main Meeting – ” The Rise of the Nazis”

Our speaker at the July main meeting was Roger Moorhouse, the well-known historian, researcher and author.  Roger is no stranger to Princes Risborough having been on four occasions to give talks to packed audiences of members of the History Group.  His talk “The Rise of the Nazis” explained the reasons behind Hitler’s rise to power in the years between the First and Second World Wars.  A fascinating and informative talk from an expert in German and Mid-European history. We certainly gained a much greater knowledge of that particular period of history that had such tragic consequences for so many people around the world.  Roger also gave his considered views on current recent developments following the rise of certain politicians in the world and whether there were similarities with the rise of Hitler.
