Black people experienced persecution and discrimination before, during and after the Third Reich in Germany and elsewhere. This workshop will utilise the Library’s valuable collections to crucially explore how the persecution of the black community by the Nazi regime was not straightforward and followed a different timeline to the persecution of other groups.

Talk Aims:

  • To gain an overview of black history in Europe.
  • To consider Nazi policies towards black people.
  • To use the Library’s collection to explore the persecution and discrimination the black community faced in Nazi-Occupied Europe.
