Toni Schiff Memorial Lecture: Moving Holocaust Stories

This lecture is in memory of Toni Schiff with support from The Toni Schiff Memorial Fund.


Toni Schiff, like many Jews before, during, and after the Second World War, was constantly on the move. In part, she was searching for a place that was safe, or at least safer, which saw her move across national borders. But she was also someone who was moved across national borders to one of the most notorious of fixed sites of the Holocaust – Auschwitz. This lecture takes Toni Schiff’s story as a starting point to examine the Holocaust as an event that was both itself constantly on the move, and also involved the mass movement – both forced and ‘voluntary’ – of Jews around the European continent.

Tim Cole is Professor of Social History at the University of Bristol, where he is also Director of the Brigstow Institute. He is the author of a number of books on the Holocaust, most recently Holocaust Landscapes (2016).

This lecture is in memory of Toni Schiff with support from The Toni Schiff Memorial Fund.
