Co-organised by the Imperial War Museums, The Wiener Library, Birkbeck, University of London and the University of Wolverhampton, this conference aims to brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines who are engaged in research on survivors of Nazi persecution. These include – but are not limited to – Jews, Roma and Sinti, Slavonic peoples, Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, Soviet prisoners of war, political dissidents, members of underground movements, the disabled, the so-called ‘racially impure’, and forced labourers.
This conference is a follow-up to previous successful conferences, which took place at Imperial War Museum London in 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2015. It builds on areas previously investigated, and also opens up new fields of academic enquiry. View the programme.
