Join Dr Simon Holloway at the Melbourne Holocaust Museum for a four-week course on the secret archive of the Warsaw Ghetto.
From the sealing of the Warsaw Ghetto in late 1940 until its final liquidation in early 1943, a small team of dedicated researchers hastily compiled information that might service future generations wanting to know about life at this unimaginable time. The materials that they gathered were to become the largest and most varied of all of the ghetto archives, and would have a profound impact on how people understand the nature and development of the Holocaust.
In this four week course, we will look at the means by which this secret archive was created, will consider the lives and personalities of those who contributed to it, and will gain a deeper appreciation as to its enduring significance today.
Each session will take place on a Thursday evening from 7pm to 8:30pm. Dates are as follows:
Week 1: Thursday 20 April
Week 2: Thursday 27 April
Week 3: Thursday 4 May
Week 4: Thursday 11 May
