From Mozart to Murder: A Holocaust Survivor Muses about Radical Evil

This lecture expounds on Walter Ziffer’s personal experiences with the radical evil of genocide during the Holocaust and his three years of imprisonment in seven slave labor and concentrations camps. The speaker relates these personal experiences to attempts by scholars to explain how such monstrosities come into being. The lecture will consider our human evolutionary genetic potentials for such, as well as situations that trigger these potentialities to transform into acted atrocities.
