Auschwitz and The End of The Second World War
18 November, 2020, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This is an online event.
2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the most lethal of all Nazi camps. This talk looks back at its final months, from the time the camp reached its murderous peak, after the mass deportations of Jews from Hungary, to the arrival of Soviet soldiers in January 1945. But liberation did not put an end to Nazi murder – it continued elsewhere, until the final German defeat in spring 1945. The talk follows the fate of former Auschwitz prisoners forced to other camps and the crimes of former Auschwitz SS staff in camps like Bergen-Belsen.
This talk is a Wiener Library Holocaust Memorial Lecture and will be led by Professor Nikolaus Wachsmann.
