Deportations in the Nazi Era - Sources and Research | Online Conference 2 - 4 November 2020

During the Nazi era, about three million Jews, half of the victims of the Holocaust, were deported from the German Reich, the occupied territories, and the countries allied with Germany and sent to ghettos, camps, and extermination centers. The police and the SS also deported tens of thousands of Sintize and Sinti, Romnja and Roma, mainly to the Auschwitz concentration and extermination camp, where most of them were murdered. Deportations were a central pillar of the National Socialist policy of persecution and extermination. As well as focusing on the various sources, their knowledge potential, and (digital) methods of cataloging and indexing, the conference also addresses new (systematizing and comparative) research questions and approaches.
