Book Launch: The Dark Heart of Hitler's Europe by Martin Winstone

Martin Winstone will discuss the tragic history of Pland in the Nazi East where more than one million people were murdered in less than five months


The General Government, the Nazi colony created out of Poland's historic core including Warsaw, Kraków and Lublin, was the principal 'racial laboratory' of the Third Reich and the central killing ground of the Holocaust. In this talk, based on his new book The Dark Heart of Hitler's Europe: Nazi Rule in Poland under the General Government, Martin Winstone will discuss the tragic history of this outpost of the Nazi East where more than one million people were murdered in less than five months, whilst guidebooks invited German tourists to enjoy the culture and nightlife of cities 'now free of Jews'. Addressing such issues as the creation of ghettos, the nature of the killing process, the identity and motives of the perpetrators, and the reactions of both Jews and non-Jews, he will reveal how this history challenges many widely held preconceptions about Nazism.

Martin Winstone is an Education Officer for the Holocaust Educational Trust and the author of The Holocaust Sites of Europe: An Historical Guide.
