A public lecture by Peter Hayes (Northwestern University)
2019-2020 Sara and Asa Shapiro Scholar in Residence
Often described as "industrialized murder" that occurred in "factories of death," the Holocaust was at its murderous peak in 1942 something quite different: an improvised process carried out at ramshackle killing installations. In this lecture, Professor Peter Hayes will detail how and why the Nazi regime managed to kill an unprecedented number of people with ferocious speed, yet without applying significant quantities of German personnel or resources.
