This session Dr. Heydari will expose the popular myths surrounding the rise and fall of the third Reich.This presentation will explore how the Nazis gained influence, how they ruled, how they treated their occupied territories and, above all, how a cultured nation could be a party to such acts of inhumanity.


I've found it quite interseting. Dr. Heydari was quite knowledgeable and handled the session professionally. Special thanks to Pasha who coordinated the runion well and didn't sit for almost two hours. It was the first time for me and I really enjoyed it. I hope to participate in the coming gatherings.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
