2021 Ina Levine Annual Lecture

7 p.m. ET | 4 p.m. PT

Forced into a ghetto during the Nazi occupation, Kraków’s Jewish residents lived in overcrowded buildings, isolated from the rest of the city by fences and a wall. They endured forced labor and were deprived of basic needs like food and sanitation. By contrast, the Nazi perpetrators dominated the rest of the city, benefiting from their power, privilege, and exploitation of Jews. What was their aim?

Learn how digital maps and models, combined with a Holocaust survivor’s diary and other traditional primary sources, expand what is known about the overlap in victims’ experiences and perpetrators’ plans.
