Christopher Browning, the Frank Porter Graham Professor of History at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, will discuss “The Final Solution” at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7, at the University Center on the campus of the University of North Florida.

He is best known for his 1992 “Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland” study of the German Order Police Reserve Unit 101, which was used to massacre and round up Jews for deportation to the death campus in Poland during the early 1940s. His most recent publication is “The Origins of the Final Solution: The Evolution of Nazi Jewish Policy.”

Browning’s additional publications include “The Path to Genocide,” “Fateful Months: Essays on the Emergency of the Final Solution” and “The Final Solution and the German Foreign Office.” In the spring of 2001, he delivered the first George Mosse Lectures at the University of Wisconsin, which were published as “Collected Memories: Holocaust History and Postwar Territory.”

This lecture is part of the Distinguished Voices Inquiry and Insight Lecture Series. Tickets for this free lecture can be ordered online at Click on the Spring 2007 Lectures link.
