Lecture journey to Auschwitz

Auschwitz as a symbol

Monday January 22 at 7.30 PM prof. dr. Marc van Berkel, endowed professor of Holocaust Education, will give a lecture in which the following themes will be discussed:

  • a brief history of antisemitism, leading up to the systematic Nazi killing machine during the second World War;
  • Auschwitz as the symbol of this killing machine;
  • Holocaust as a (problematic) term.

The lecture will last approximately 45 minutes, and will be followed by time and space for questions and join in conversation.

After a short break there will be a meeting to prepare the journey to Auschwitz from 2-5 February (hosted by the university chaplaincies from Delft, Leiden, Nijmegen and Rotterdam). This meeting is only intended for students already having registered for the journey.
