Seminar to explore research into images taken by Jewish photographers during the Holocaust.

The University of Leicester’s Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies invites you to attend the research seminar ‘Photographs from the Lodz Ghetto during the Holocaust’, given by Tanja Kinzel from the Free University of Berlin on 7 December 2017.

The seminar will take place from 4.00-5.30 pm in Attenborough 208. Tanja Kinzel will give an insight into her fascinating research on photographs taken by Jewish photographers. The photographs document life in the Lodz community of coercion, and address the extent to which the study of visual primary sources can shed new light on survival strategies and everyday life in the Lodz ghetto during the Holocaust.

The research seminar will be of relevance not only to those interested in the topic of internal life in the ghettos under German occupation, but also for everyone interested in photography, visual culture, and how historians can fruitfully make use of these newer methodological approaches.
