LA CROSSE, Wis. – Christian Brothers University history professor Frank Buscher will present “Explaining the Holocaust: The Historian as Teacher and War Crimes Investigator” in Viterbo University’s Fine Arts Center Main Theatre at 7 p.m. Monday, March 20.

The event is free and open to the public. No reservations are required, but seating is limited. The presentation is part of the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership 2005-06 lecture series, Perspectives on the Holocaust.

Buscher holds a Ph.D. from Marquette University and has worked as a historian for the Canadian government’s Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes agencies. He has written a book and has been published in scholarly journals German History, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, German Studies Review, Central European History, and Holocaust Studies Annual.

Historians have acted as researchers, investigators, and expert witnesses in court cases, and been the driving force behind the growing popularity of high school and college courses on the evils of racism in general and the Nazi murder of the European Jews in particular. Buscher’s presentation will explore the reasons there are such different, and often contradictory, perceptions of the holocaust.

Funding for Buscher’s appearance is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council.
