The Nazis of Copley Square provides a crucial missing chapter in the history of the American far right. The men of the Christian Front imagined themselves as crusaders fighting for the spiritual purification of the nation, under assault from godless Communism, and they were hardly alone in their beliefs. Gallagher chronicles the evolution of the Front, the transatlantic cloak-and-dagger intelligence operations that subverted it, and the mainstream political and religious leaders who shielded the Front’s activities from scrutiny. This grim tale of faith perverted to violent ends serves as a warning for those who hope to curb the spread of far-right ideologies today.

There is a $10 per person fee (no charge for MHS Members and Fellows, EBT, or ConnectorCare cardholders).

Please note, this is an online event held on the video conference platform, Zoom. Registrants will receive an email with links to join the program.
