“A Hybrid Horror: The Janowska Camp
and a New Categorization of Nazi camps”

Dr. Waitman Beorn, Executive Director, Virginia Holocaust Museum

This discussion will focus on the Janowska camp outside of Lviv which has been almost completely neglected by scholarly inquiry but which presents a challenge to researchers due to its multi-faceted uses as a slave labor camp, a transit camp, and an extermination site. How does such a space fit into conventional categorizations of Holocaust sites and what makes Janowska exceptional? Moreover, how does Janowska demonstrate its connection to the Holocaust in Lviv demonstrate an intersection of national, regional, and local anti-Jewish policy?
Open to all members of the UVa community and the public.
Light refreshments will be served.

This talk is part of the UVA Polish Lecture Series and is cosponsored by the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, the Corcoran Department of History, and the Jewish Studies Program at UVA.
