Humanities Montana Awards Grant to the Mansfield Library

31 January 2014 by Julie Biando Edwards

The Mansfield Library was recently awarded a grant from Humanities Montana in support of the Library’s efforts to bring the exhibition “Fighting the Fires of Hate: America and the Nazi Book Burnings” to the University of Montana. This exhibition, produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, details events on and around May 10, 1933, when German university students burned thousands of “un-German” books, and explores how the book burnings became a potent symbol in America’s battle against Nazism and why they continue to resonate with the public—in film, literature, and political discourse—to this day. A series of related lectures, films, and exhibits are being planned for the duration of the exhibition, which will be held in the Mansfield Library beginning in October 2014. Humanities Montana is an affiliate of the National Endowment of the Humanities and whose vision is to “enrich the lives of all Montanans by fostering inquiry and stimulating civil and informed conversations about the human experience.” For more information please contact Julie Biando Edwards at Julie.edwards@umontana.edu or 406-243-4505.
