Virtual Student and Teacher Talk: What was the Holocaust? An Overview

October 4, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Part of the Wiener Holocaust Library’s free series of educational events for students and teachers, drawing on our unique archive collection.

In this talk, aimed at GCSE and A-Level students and teachers, the Library’s Education Officer, Kiera Fitzgerald, will draw upon the Library’s rich and diverse collections of original historical material to provide an introduction to the key events and the main features of the Holocaust.

She will explore the murders of Jews and Roma by killing squads in eastern Europe, and the transportations to extermination camps. The session will consider Jewish and Roma victims of the Holocaust and Nazi genocide, examine who the perpetrators and collaborators were, and consider the historical evidence that allows historians to understand the Holocaust.
