Dr. Anna Hájková, Associate Professor of History at the University of Warwick, with Professor Maiken Umbach discusses the experiences of those accused of engaging in same sex conduct under the Nazi regime and why certain stories connected to the sexuality of the Holocaust victims were never told.
Dr. Hájková’s book, The Last Ghetto, explored the everyday history of Theresienstadt. She is currently working on queer Holocaust history.
This online event has been organised to coincide with the exhibition The Eye as Witness: Recording the Holocaust (Djanogly Gallery, Lakeside Arts, 22 January – 13 March 2022) based on research by a multi-disciplinary team led by Prof. Umbach.
