The Last Ghetto: A History of Theresienstadt. A talk by dr. Anna Hajkova (University of Warwick, UK)

Event ended
On Wednesday, September 18 at 18.00 at Staraia Basmannaia 21/4 Room L-308, Dr. Anna Hajkova (Associate Professor, University of Warwick, UK) will deliver a talk "The Last Ghetto: A History of Theresienstadt."

Abstract: Located in today's Czech Republic, Theresienstadt (Terezín in Czech) was operated by the Nazis between November 1941 and May 1945 as a transit camp for Central and Western European Jews before their deportation for murder in the East. Theresienstadt was the last ghetto to be liberated, one day after the end of World War II. This talk treats the world of the prisoners as more than an atomized state of exception, and instead shows that society lives on even under the most extreme circumstances.

The talk will be in English.

Non-HSE staff who would like to attend the talk can order a pass via this form.
