International Festival of Arts and Ideas - Program on Tyranny

Kim hosts Timothy Snyder, one of the leading American historians and public intellectuals. He is the Housum Professor of History at Yale University and a permanent fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna.

His latest book, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century is currently number one on the New York Times Best Seller list. Snyder first introduced these lessons in a Facebook post in November 2016, just days after the presidential election. The post has since received more than one million views, having been reposted, republished, and retweeted countless times. Snyder’s lessons have resonated with a world-wide audience.
