Very little has been recorded about same-sex desire and relationships in concentration camps and ghettos during the Holocaust, leaving us with questions about how queer relationships were viewed and what stories may have been erased. 

On March 28, Dr. Anna Hájková, a scholar of Jewish Holocaust history and pioneer of queer Holocaust history, will discuss why including queer perspectives helps us develop a more inclusive history of the Holocaust.
