Listen to Episode 63 of Slate’s The Gist:
Today on The Gist, we observe the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I with a feature about the start of World War II. Mike asks Ron Rosenbaum, author of Explaining Hitler: The Search for the Origins of His Evil, about how a genocidal monster is formed, and whether the Holocaust would have happened without him. For the Spiel, all you missed on ABC’s This Week.
