Once again I had the privilege to attend a session organized by the Ghetto Fighters’ House museum. A very informative session and also very chilling the witness accounts.
The third program in the series, “Rethinking the ‘Final Solution,’ and the Wannsee Conference 80 Years Later,” will present a multidisciplinary look at the three Operation Reinhard camps and how they operated. Dr. Tamir Hod, a historian at the Ghetto Fighters’ House, will present his most recent research on the daily life of the Ukrainian collaborators in Belzec and Treblinka. The archeologist Yoram Haimi will discuss his long-term work in the Sobibór Archaeological Project and the importance of his findings. Hannah Wilson, a Ph.D. candidate at Nottingham Trent University and Content Director for World ORT, took part in the project with Haimi and will discuss the Sobibor uprising that took place in October 1943 whose narrative has marginalized the experiences of women in the camp. She will outline the roles of women within camp structures, the uprising itself, and their stories throughout the months that followed.
This program is in partnership with Liberation 75, Remember the Women Institute, the Rabin Chair Forum, Classrooms Without Borders, the House of the Wannsee Conference Memorial and Educational Site, and the Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Center.
