Since seating is limited, we must remind participants of the following:
- that if you RSVP in the affirmative, and your plans change, you are expected to log back in and change your status to “not attending;”
- that Vanderbilt participants must RSVP for themselves, and may not be “guests;” and
- that non-Vanderbilt guests are limited to one per participant.
Rising through the ranks of Hungary's far-right extremist party, Csanád Szegedi has built a career of denying the Holocaust and dehumanizing Jews. His world is rocked upon learning a long-held family secret: his maternal grandparents were not only Jewsish, but survivors of the Holocaust. The shocking revelation prompts an improbably but seemingly genuine conversion from prejudiced provocateur to devout Jew. Based on a true story.
