Documenting the Holocaust

March 25 , 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In November 1939, a group of sixty Jewish journalists and writers, refugees from recently-occupied Poland, clandestinely formed the “Committee to Collect Material about the Destruction of Polish Jewry, 1939” in still-independent Vilnius. It was the earliest Jewish collective effort to document German atrocities against Polish Jewry.
Scholar Miriam Schulz, the author of a pioneering study on the Vilnius Committee, will discuss how she discovered the archive (in the depository of London’s Wiener Library), and its legacy today.
Free; advance registration recommended.
