The Ackerman Center's Spring Lecture Series: “Revisiting Deportations and War in 1943”

Sunday, April 2 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Erik Jonsson Academic Center (JO), JO 4.614
800 W. Campbell Road, Richardson, Texas 75080-3021

Dr. Nils Roemer, AHT Dean, Director of the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies, and the Stan and Barbara Rabin Distinguished Professor in Holocaust Studies, will present the first talk of the Ackerman Center's annual Spring Lecture Series.

The lecture seeks to contextualize the genocidal policies of the Third Reich more firmly in the context of the war. The beginning of the year 1943 brought the official admission of defeat at Stalingrad together with the renewal of Allied air raids on German cities. In response to the changing military situation, the Third Reich renewed the focus on military conflict with the declaration of "total war" and acceleration of the liquidation of ghettos in the East and new deportations from the West. The completion of Operation Reinhard coincided with a new renewed acceleration of deportations from Western Europe.  Part of the lecture will be based on the study of a unique database, created at the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies, that allows visualizing the intensified deportation, particularly from Western Europe. Tracking the patterns of these deportations allows to better comprehend how the Holocaust continued to be implemented on a local, regional, national, and European scale within the changing context of the war.
