CENTRAL — The Central-Clemson Friends of the Library holds its annual meeting at 3 p.m. March 30 at the Central-Clemson Regional Branch Library. A short business meeting and election of officers will precede the program.
Dr. Donald K. McKale, Class of 1941 Memorial Professor and Professor Emeritus of history at Clemson University, will discuss his most recent book, Nazis After Hitler: How Perpetrators of the Holocaust Cheated Justice and Truth.
McKale’s research and writing have ranged widely, exploring the history of subjects such as World War I, the Nazi party and German diplomacy, the Holocaust and World War II, and the postwar myth that Adolf Hitler survived the war and defeat of his Nazi regime.
McKale’s most recent of eight books, Nazis after Hitler: How Perpetrators of the Holocaust Cheated Justice and Truth (2012) and Hitler’s Shadow War: The Holocaust and World War II (2002), were selections of the national History Book Club.
His War By Revolution: Germany and Great Britain in the Middle East in the Era of World War I (1998) received the Charles Smith Book Award from the European section of the Southern Historical Association.
Poor Richard’s Booksellers will be there with books available for purchase, and a signing will follow the program.
