Holocaust Museum Official to Speak on Clergy and Genocide

On Wednesday, February 23, 2011, at 7:30 p.m., Victoria Barnett, Staff Director of Church Relations at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, will be speaking at Drew University in Craig Chapel, Seminary Hall on “Dietrich Bonhoeffer for the Future: The New ‘World Come of Age.’”

In 1930, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran minister and brilliant theologian who was teaching at Union Theological Seminary in New York for a year, returned to Germany as Hitler was rising to power. He joined the German resistance and struggled against Nazism and its intimidation of the Church. Bonhoeffer’s legacy is revealed in his writings which chronicle his struggles to determine the will of God as he faced his own death in prison.

Is Bonhoeffer’s theology still relevant for the challenges in our world today? Victoria Barnett will speak to this question, drawing on new research and insights that have emerged from the new translation of his works.
