“The Last Ghetto” Book Talk

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Terezín, as it was known in Czech, or Theresienstadt in German, was operated by the Nazis between November 1941 and May 1945 as a transit ghetto for Central and Western European Jews before their deportation for murder in the East. Today, Theresienstadt is best known for its use as Nazi propaganda to impress the International Red Cross. This important aspect must be contextualized within the society of the 140,000 people who were imprisoned there. Dr. Anna Hájková’s new book The Last Ghetto offers both a modern history of this Central European ghetto and the first in-depth analytical history of an imprisoned society during the Holocaust. Based on research from ninety-nine archives, ten countries, and nine languages, the book offers an unflinching gaze on the social experience in extremis.

Join the Museum for a discussion with Hájková and Benjamin Carter Hett, author of The Nazi Menace: Hitler, Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin, and the Road to War about The Last Ghetto.
