Dr Samuel Koehne Presents at USHMM Summer Research Workshop

SKoehneProfileDeakin University Adjunct and member of the Contemporary Histories Research Group Dr Samuel Koehne recently took part in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Summer Research Workshop: ‘Religion, Fascism, Antisemitism, and Ethno-Nationalism in Europe, 1918-1945’. Dr Koehne presented on his topic ‘Racist, Brutal, Revolutionary: A Conservative Christian View of Nazism by 1933’ along with other international scholars in August 2015.

Dr Koehne’s analysis of Nazi radicalised ideology is noted in Victoria Barnett’s (USHMM) research report of the workshop in Contemporary Church History Quarterly, volume 21, number 3, 2015):

‘Points of discussion included Samuel Koehne’s analysis of Nazi radicalised ideology as a kind of “ethnotheism” that resonated among pro-fascist groups but alarmed other bodies such as the Protestant ecumenical movement and interfaith movements which were driven by an explicit anti-nationalism and anti-racism, particularly in the United States.’
