VFF: A Spatial Analysis of Perpetrators and Victims: Digital Approaches to the Holocaust

Sep 7

Paul Jaskot · Wired! Lab, AAHVS

This lecture explores how historical GIS, corpus linguistics, and digital visualization are central to explaining the role of construction in the Holocaust. The Holocaust occurred at all scales -- from the continental to the level of the individual -- and understanding those shifting scales of genocide requires the mixed methods that digital and analog approaches enable. Focusing on the two case studies of the SS concentration camp system and the ghettos in occupied Europe, I will argue for an integrated analysis of the Holocaust that sees the dynamic spatial relationship between perpetrators and victims above all in the buildings and forced-labor construction industry of which they were a part.
