The Nazi Camp Universe, 1933-1945: Landscapes of Suffering and Paths of Persecution
|Date||Wed, Feb 9, 11:00am - 12:00pm|
Join Dr. Alexandra Lohse for a brief overview of the Nazi concentration camp universe consisting of more than 40,000 sites operated by the Nazi regime and its allies, an almost incomprehensible number that challenges our understanding of the nature, ubiquity, and visibility of Nazi persecution. Using perpetrator documentation as well as survivor and eyewitness testimonies and memoirs, her talk will illuminate the dynamic nature and function of some of these sites while illustrating paths of persecution that many victims suffered there between 1933 and 1945. Dr. Lohse is the Applied Research Scholar Team Lead at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
