In Pursuit of the Nazi Mind: Rudolf Hess & his Doctors 1941-1946

Making History: Archives, Artefacts and Interpreting the Past - Lecture Series

Speaker: Professor Daniel Pick, Birkbeck, University of London
Date: Wed, Feb. 16, 2011
Time:  7:00pm - 8:30pm
Free event open to all:

Daniel Pick will talk informally about his current research relating to the formation of Anglo-American psychoanalytic ideas about the Third Reich. He will consider the context of such work in the 1930s and 40s, and raise questions about their post-war consequences. He will focus, in particular, on encounters between British army doctors and Rudolf Hess, American psychoanalytically-informed studies of the Führer, and theories of the 'Nazi mind' that crystallised at the Nuremberg trial.
