The Museum of Jewish Heritage–A Living Memorial to the Holocaust presents a book talk on Ruth Ben-Ghiat’s “Strongmen: Mussolini To The Present.”

Ruth Ben-Ghiat, an American historian and cultural critic, is the expert on the “strongman” playbook employed by authoritarian demagogues from Mussolini to Putin―enabling her to predict with uncanny accuracy the recent experience in America.

In her new book Strongmen: Mussolini to the Present, she lays bare the blueprint these leaders have followed over the past 100 years and empowers us to recognize, resist, and prevent their disastrous rule in the future. This program will be moderated by “How Fascism Works: author Jason Stanley.

The program has a suggested donation of $10 but can be accessed for free.
