Breakdown of Social Structure: The Hitler Salute and Nazi-Germany

CRRC-Armenia in cooperation with YERITAC YNGO hosted a lecture-discussion entitled "Breakdown of Social Structure: The Hitler Salute and Nazi-Germany" conducted by Prof. Dr. Tilman Allert (Frankfurt a.M., Germany) on June 5, 2008.

Tilman Allert is a professor of sociology and social psychology at the University of Frankfurt. The lecture focused on his book The Hitler Salute: On the Meaning of a Gesture, which explains the phenomenon of the infamous greeting, the symbol of National Socialism, and shows what happened when the traditional ways of greetings were replaced with Hitler salute.

Prof. Allert is signing a copy of his book before donating it to the center.
