Professor Anne Knowles: Geographies of the Holocaust
The Holocaust separated families, destroyed communities, displaced millions, and created new kinds of places — densely crowded Jewish ghettos and concentration camps — where people labored and died. Each of these traumas was fundamentally geographical, yet few scholars have examined geographies of the Holocaust. Professor Anne Knowles (Middlebury College, Geography Department) will highlight the work of the Holocaust Geographies Collaborative, in international team of historians and geographers who have explored this complex event using geographic methods of analysis — notably Geographic Information Systems (GIS) — and data visualization.
