Presenter: Dr. Benjamin W. Goossen

The Global Mennonite Encounter with Nazism, 1919-1955

One fourth of all Mennonites worldwide lived under Nazi rule at the height of the Third Reich. This presentation offers an overview of Mennonite experiences under, attitudes toward, and entanglements with National Socialism. This topic is of current relevance in light of recent investigations undertaken by Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) to examine its role after World War II in helping Mennonite refugees who had previously lived in Hitler’s empire, including individuals implicated in the crimes of the Holocaust against European Jews.

Ben Goossen is a historian of the US and Europe in the world, specializing in histories of race, science, and the environment. He holds a PhD in history from Harvard University and is the author of Chosen Nation: Mennonites and Germany in a Global Era, published by Princeton University Press in 2017.
