Posted by rmt22 at Jan 18, 2017 11:58 AM |
In this lecture, hosted by the Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust Studies, we welcome Dr Jonas Kreienbaum from the University of Rostock.

Our Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust Studies is the oldest Holocaust research centre in the UK, and we regularly welcome high profile academics to discuss a range of fascinating topics.

On Tuesday 24 January at 6pm in the Fraser Noble Hall (2 University Rd, Leicester LE1 7RA) Dr Jonas Kreienbaum from the University of Rostock discusses the first genocide of the 20th century, which was carried out by Imperial Germany against the Herero and Nama peoples in today's Namibia 110 years ago.

The lecture explores the links between colonialism and genocide, asks how Imperial Germany and Great Britain looked upon each other's colonial atrocities and finally explores if there are actually any links between Germany's and Europe's colonial genocides and the Holocaust.

You don't need to book for this free lecture which is open to the general public. For more information, please contact Dr Paul Moore on
