Description

The presentation will be on several of the key architects of the Holocaust, and the key ideas will be based on the events leading up to the beginning of the concentration camp system, specifically Auschwitz. Notable events will include the passing of the Nuremberg Laws, which sought to identify Jews in German occupied territories, the formation of the Einsatzgruppen, or mobile killing units, first formed in Soviet Russia. Livingconditions in the camp system will also be explored, in order to include work details, and the gas chambers. The methodology employed by the Nazis to gas millions of Jews during this time will be scientifically broken down. It is widely known that throughout the concentration camp system medical experimentation took place on an unprecedented scale. Several of the major figures involved in conducting these experiments, such as Josef Mengele, will be explored as well as the types of procedures performed.
