Talking with Nazis

International History Department Literary Festival event

Historian and filmmaker Laurence Rees introduces and comments on clips selected from his television documentaries, The Nazis: a Warning from History and Auschwitz. Both series made extensive use of interviews with former Nazis, many of whom perpetrated terrible atrocities. Laurence will reflect on the ethical and practical issues entailed in using such material as historical evidence.

Laurence Rees is a former Head of BBC TV History programmes and Creative Director of BBC Television History who has won high acclaim for his work as a producer of historical documentaries, and has published widely on the history of the Second World War, including most recently Behind Closed Doors: Stalin, the Nazis and the West. He is currently a Senior Visiting Fellow in the International History Department
