Hannah Arendt was many things during her life: an author, a journalist, a philosopher, and a theorist. She was one of the most influential and controversial Jewish figures of her time. Her works include The Human Condition and Eichmann in Jerusalem. This year is the 70th anniversary of her landmark book, The Origins of Totalitarianism, which explores the ways that totalitarian regimes come to power. Join the Museum for a program exploring Arendt’s legacy and continuing impact.

The program will include a discussion between Samantha Rose Hill, author of the new book Hannah Arendt, part of Reaktion Books’s short biography series Critical Lives, and the upcoming translation of Hannah Arendt’s Poems, and Ken Krimstein, author of The Three Escapes of Hannah Arendt.
