Thirteen years ago, researchers in the Museum’s Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies embarked on creating a comprehensive encyclopedia of Nazi camps and ghettos. They assumed the finished work would be lengthy, including 5,000 to 7,000 individual facilities.
Today, their ultimate count of more than 42,000 camps and ghettos is reshaping public understanding of the scope of the Holocaust. Join Dr. Geoffrey Megargee, the encyclopedia’s editor, for a discussion of this vast reference and learn about what this work means for survivors and their families.
The 2013-14 South Florida Speaker and Film Series is chaired by Helen Marshall.
