Holocaust Museum Houston presents Auschwitz. Not Long Ago. Not Far Away. with Dr. Robert Jan Van Pelt
Dr. Robert Jan Van Pelt will discuss the exhibition, "Auschwitz. Not Long Ago. Not Far Away.," that traces the development of Nazi ideology and tells the transformation of Auschwitz from an ordinary Polish town known as Oświęcim to the most significant Nazi site of the Holocaust—at which approximately 1 million Jews, and tens of thousands of others, were murdered. Victims included Polish political prisoners, Sinti and Roma, Soviet POWs, Jehovah's Witnesses and those the Nazis deemed “homosexual,” “disabled,” “criminal,” “inferior,” or adversarial in countless other ways.
