Scales of Persecution: Digitally Mapping the Holocaust through the Janowska Camp
Digital History Seminar (Institute for Historical Research- London)
How can we apply digital spatial methods and theory to the Holocaust? This presentation seeks to showcase some ways in which mapping and visualization have been used in the study of one concentration camp but also to highlight some (unanswered) questions that inform the use of digital techniques in analysis and presentation. Some of these questions are centered around ethics, ambiguity, sources, and the strengths/weaknesses of various approaches.

The Janowska Camp at the Center of the Holocaust in Galicia
Center for Urban History, Lviv, Ukraine
The Janowska camp complex in Lwów was responsible for the murder of at least 80,000 Jews yet has received relatively little academic treatment. The camp is of particular interest to historians of the Holocaust due to its hybrid nature as slave labor camp, transit camp, and extermination center. This lecture will details and analyze these functions while showing how the camp itself was central to the Holocaust in Lviv and in Galicia.
