For the final event in our Death Marches: Evidence and Memory series, we were delighted to be joined by Holocaust survivor Manfred Goldberg BEM. Mr Goldberg was led in conversation by Professor Dan Stone, one of the co-curators of the Death Marches exhibition, and shared his experiences of his own death march journey and liberation.
In this virtual panel, speakers discuss different ways of commemorating the death marches, including pilgrimages, memorials at former Nazi camps and other sites of significance, and artistic and photographic responses to such sites.
In this virtual panel, speakers explore aspects of reckonings with the Holocaust in the immediate post-war period. Panellists discuss the disintegration of the camps system; ‘forced confrontations’ between Allied militaries and the German civilian population; post-war trials of perpetrators involved in the death marches; and the lives of Holocaust survivors in the aftermath of liberation.
In this virtual panel, speakers discuss the forensic turn in Holocaust and genocide studies. The panel addresses how forensic evidence, such as sites of mass burial and human remains, has informed research and remembrance of genocide, as well as political and ethical dealings with sites of mass atrocity.
In this virtual talk, a panel of speakers discuss the sources and new research methods that have uncovered different aspects of the history of the death marches and the end of the Second World War. What sources do scholars use to recover and narrate this difficult past? Which forms do those narrations take?
The HGRP’s inaugural, co-located exhibition uncovered how forensic and other evidence about the death marches has been gathered since the end of the Holocaust. It chronicled how researchers and others attempted to recover the death march routes – and those who did not survive them.
