One-Day Seminar: Origins of the Cold War hosted by Kentucky Historical Society (Frankfort, KY)

April 10, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

How did the alliances of World War 2 break down, and so quickly, after 1945? How close were these alliances in the first place, and what differences existed between the United States and the Soviet Union that acted as wedges between these two states and their respective allies? This seminar focuses on the ideas, events, and people – as expressed in key documents – of the years immediately after the end of World War 2, and how the Cold War began.

Lunch will be provided at this free program, as well as a certificate for continuing education. All registrants will receive a copy of the reader, on paper, in advance of the program; and digital copies will be available here after early March 2021. Click here to register.
