In his Prix Goncourt-winning book newly translated into English, author Éric Vuillard masterfully reconstructs and looks anew at the extraordinary sequence of events and individual acts that led to the catastrophe of the Anschluss (the annexation of Austria into Nazi Germany).

Mr. Vuillard will be joined in conversation by Ajay Singh Chaudhary, Executive Director of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research.
