Holocaust scholar to receive Dolibois Prize, present talk
Christopher Browning will receive the third annual John E. Dolibois History Prize on Thursday, Nov. 18. At a 7:30 p.m. ceremony in Parrish Auditorium on the Miami Hamilton campus, Browning will accept the honor and then give a lecture titled “The Holocaust's Perpetrators: Attempted Explanations of History's Greatest Crime.” A reception follows the talk.
All events are free and open to the public.
Browning holds an endowed chair at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill as Frank Porter Graham Professor of History. He is the world's most widely consulted academic expert on the Holocaust. Michael Carrafiello, director of the Michael J. Colligan History Project, says two of Browning's books, Ordinary Men and The Origins of the Final Solution, are used in just about every Holocaust class taught in the United States. Browning has testified before the U.S. Congress and the Court of Queen's Bench in Great Britain, in addition to dozens of appearances around the globe.
The Dolibois Prize is awarded annually to outstanding historians who have made extraordinary contributions to the discipline. Previous recipients are Ambassador Dolibois himself and President Emeritus Phillip R. Shriver.
