Jack Mayer will present Weimar Germany and the Rise of the Third Reich

Germany after World War 1 was left defeated, humiliated, and in chaos with leftist revolution and right wing violence. Jack Mayer will recount the origins of the Third Reich through the story of Ernst Werner Techow, a member of the para-military Free Corps and the murderous Organization C, who was recruited into a clandestine assassination network trying to bring down the fledgling Weimar democracy.  Techow participated in the 1922 murder of Foreign Minister Walther Rathenau, the highest ranking Jew in the Weimar Republic, but an offer of forgiveness while on trial for his life set him on a complex journey of redemption.
