Nazi Germany

In the third installment of "The History of Democracy," Tracy Ross and Dr. David Pizzo, Murray State professor of history, return to the Weimar Republic. Pizzo explains mainstream conservatism in Germany in the 1920s and '30s and the infighting that ultimately led to the rise of Hitler and the Nazi regime. He also draws comparisons between the deeply-rooted polarization of the late Weimar Republic and the modern U.S.
