Workshop Information

As the 70th anniversary of the Nazi invasion and occupation of the Soviet Union approaches, this workshop examines the experience of Nazi occupation on a local, rather than regional, level.

Since the collapse of communism in 1989-90, major scholarly developments have enhanced our understanding of the Holocaust, but there is still important work to be done. While pioneering regional studies of the German occupation have filled in what were formerly vast blank spots, scholars are just now beginning the transition from the regional to the local, from policy decisionmaking and implementation to the human experience of the consequences and the human faces of the perpetrators, bystanders, and victims.

The interplay of the German occupiers with local populations, the participation of women in the German occupation, and the insidious effects of property redistribution are topics that promise to illuminate the practice and experience of the German occupation in
important ways.
