The Architects of Auschwitz
Perhaps no other concentration camp informs our understanding and memory of the Holocaust more than Auschwitz. This presentation by Dr. Robert Jan van Pelt explores how was it built and the architects who made it possible.
Dr. Robert Jan van Pelt, a professor at the University of Waterloo’s School of Architecture, was an expert witness in Deborah Lipstadt’s defense in the civil libel suit brought against her by British author and Holocaust denier David Irving in 1996. He is also a curator of the exhibition Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away.
