Public Lecture by Professor Anne Knowles, (University of Maine), 2023/24 Global Fellow Mapping Genocide - What numbers and location can, and cannot, tell us about the Holocaust

In this lecture, Professor Knowles, a leading practitioner of historical GIS, will contrast counting and mapping data about 1,142 Holocaust ghettos to the brutal specifics of genocide in Eastern Galicia and Lithuania, and to what one family experienced during eight mass atrocities in their hometown. She will argue that many scales, methods, and sources are necessary to grasp the variations and dynamics of mass removals across Eastern Europe.
