Peter Gay is a prominent author and scholar of European history. His lecture will draw on his own experiences as an exile from Nazi Germany. His life in Germany and his escape from the country formed the basis for his 1998 memoir, My German Question: Growing Up in Nazi Berlin. The book detailed the contradictions of everyday life under the Nazi dictatorship and Gay?s own conflicting emotions for the country of his birth. Gay made his mark writing books that feature impeccable historical research encased in a style that makes them accessible and enjoyable to a wide variety of readers.
