A Modernist in Exile: The International Reception of H.G. Adler: Lecture by Nikolaus Wachsmann and R

The Nazi Concentration Camps: Their Course and Connections

Taking the research and writings of the scholar and Holocaust survivor H. G. Adler as its starting point, this lecture explores the history of the Nazi concentration camps, from their inception in 1933 through to their demise in the spring of 1945, focusing on the shifting function of the camps, as well as the experiences of prisoners, perpetrators and onlookers.

Nikolaus Wachsmann is Professor of Modern European history at Birkbeck College, University of London, and author of the prize-winning Hitler's Prisons. His comprehensive account of the Nazi camps was published last year by Little, Brown, under the title: KL: A History of the Nazi Concentration Camps. The book received special commendation by the judging panel of the Fraenkel Prize in 2014.

This event is part of the ‘A Modernist in Exile: The International Reception of H.G. Adler’ at the University of London on 20 May. Registration for this event is separate.
