People Without History are Dust: Queer Jews in the Holocaust

The pioneer of queer Holocaust history, Anna Hájková, explores the importance of same sex desire among Holocaust victims in the Shoah. She explores love, sexual barter, as well as sexual violence, and examines how it came to be that this history remains to one carrying a stigma even in 2022.

Dr. Anna Hájková is associate professor at the University of Warwick. Her first book, The Last Ghetto: An Everyday History of Theresienstadt, came out in 2020 with Oxford University Press. She is currently working on a study of transgressive sexuality in the Holocaust. Her work on queer history of the Holocaust was published in Czech, German, British, US American, and Israeli newspapers and was awarded the Orfeo Iris Prize 2020.
