Willamette University history professor William Smaldone reviews fascism in Hitler’s era

Show Notes

This week on the Forum, a strong but controversial leader built a broad coalition of voters, most from the lower classes, but a lot of the aristocrats too…and he pulled the levers of power to boost own his party and his political allies, while openly and harshly attacking his enemies. Critics said he’d never actually won a majority and would be gone but they were wrong about Adolph Hitler. Willamette University professor William Smaldone gives a “Big Questions Over Lunch” lecture on fascism then and now, from the Weimar Republic to Charlottsville, in this week’s edition of The Forum.
