The Florida Holocaust Museum will present two public lectures this month.

Samantha Power, a former Balkan correspondent and author of A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide, will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday at the museum, 55 Fifth St. S, St. Petersburg.

The talk is free for museum members and $6 for nonmembers.

Ms. Power will speak about the role of the United States in genocides, including Bosnia, Rwanda and Cambodia, and the U.S. policy following the events of Sept. 11.

Ms. Power, executive director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard University, also will be the keynote speaker during the museum's Advanced Holocaust Studies for teachers being held this week. Michael Berenbaum, a Holocaust scholar and professor of theology at the University of Judaism in Los Angeles and former director of research at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, will speak at 7 p.m. June 16 at the St. Petersburg Hilton, 333 First St. S, St. Petersburg. He will speak about post-Holocaust events, including Sept. 11 and the Middle East crisis. He also will discuss the role of Jehovah's Witnesses during the Holocaust.

The cost will be $50 for the evening's dinner and talk or $10 for the talk only.

For reservations for both speakers, call the museum, (727) 820-0100, ext. 234.
