Post Road Meeting Room

Beginning in 1933, the Nazis used words and images to turn public opinion against “undesirable” people. Tyler Crafton-Karnes, from the Museum of History and Holocaust Education will discuss the steps taken by the Nazi regime that ultimately led to the extermination of 11 million people. Through survivor testimony, discover the history of the Holocaust, the power of resilience, and the indomitable nature of the human spirit. Be sure to view the exhibit in the Post Road Library from July 20 - August 22, "Georgia's Response to the Holocaust." 

Tyler Crafton-Karnes is the Adult Program Coordinator and Accessibility Specialist at the Museum of History and Holocaust Education at Kennesaw State University, where he has worked for the last six years. He has an undergraduate degree in History and Art History from Kennesaw State University and a master’s degree in Art History and Museum Curating from the University of Sussex in Brighton, England. He is currently working to obtain his Ph.D. in History at Georgia State University. Tyler’s areas of interest are public history, Modern European history, dress history, trauma theory, and cultural history. His dissertation will focus on how museums that interpret traumatic events represent the body and the voice.
