Student Holocaust Exhibition to feature in library

Posted by rmt22 at Mar 15, 2017 11:15 AM |
From Wednesday 22 March a group of third year History students will be presenting their work on the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in our David Wilson Library.

The students have been conducting their research as part of the third year special subject module, The Holocaust: A Genocide in Europe, with the support of their tutor Dr Alex Korb and the Stanley Burton Centre for the Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

The basis of the exhibition comes from a collection of images and other primary materials donated by the granddaughter of a wartime photographer George Barton.

The photographs that students have been working with provide an original view of the liberation of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp by the British Army, as well as pictures of the guards, who were imprisoned in the camp after the liberation.

The exhibition will open with a reception on Wednesday 22 March at 5pm. The head of the School of History, Politics and International Relations, Dr George Lewis, will introduce the initiative behind the projects and the students themselves will present their work.

The display will remain in the library for a short period of time so that everyone has the chance to see it.
