And sometimes you miss one you really wanted to see.
That’s why we’ve started MPL Talks, where we post full programs online for you to watch at your convenience. It’s not quite the same as being there. (For example, you don’t get to ask questions.) But it’s better than missing out.
Recently, our own Dr. John Foster—who, in addition to being a librarian, also has a doctorate degree in history—discussed the Rise of National Socialism in Germany as part of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Adolf Hitler’s rise to popularity and power
how the instability and failure of the Weimar Republic created fertile ground for National Socialism
the pseudo-scientists who encouraged Germany’s anti-Semitism
what a terrible book Mein Kampf is.
Other historical talks by Foster can be watched on our YouTube page, including:
Teens can use neon colors to create eye-catching pieces that glow when placed beneath a black light.
(By the way, if you’re wondering why fluorescent paint glows, it’s because they don’t simply reflect light like normal colors do. They absorb ultraviolet light—which we can’t see, but other animals like bees can—and release that energy as visible light.)
