Yale University history professor Dr. Timothy Snyder will discuss his groundbreaking book Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin during the University of Memphis Department of History’s Sesquicentennial Lecture on Thursday, Jan. 26, in the University Center Theatre.

A reception will begin at 6 p.m., followed by the lecture at 6:30. A book-signing will follow the lecture. The event is free and open to the public. Paid parking is available in the Zach Curlin garage adjacent to the University Center.

In this powerful history of mass killing in the lands straddling the empires of Josef Stalin and Adolph Hitler, Snyder documents the horrors of the 14 million who died in Poland, western Russia, and modern-day Ukraine, Belarus, and the Baltic Republics. In the process, Snyder has upended conventional thinking about European history before and during World War II.

Bloodlands was named a Best Book of 2010 by The Atlantic, The Economist, The New Republic, the Financial Times, The Guardian, Reason, the New Statesman, The Seattle Times, and The Forward.

The event is presented by the U of M’s Marcus W. Orr Center for the Humanities. For more information about this event or any of the programs of the Marcus W. Orr Center, visit or call Dr. Aram Goudsouzian at 901-678-2520.
