Please join us for the first annual DiMatteo lecture and the first event in our Fall Lecture Series, "Visualizing the Holocaust," presented by Dr. Anne Knowles, McBride Professor of History, University of Maine, and Co-Founder of the Holocaust Geographies Collaborative.

The Holocaust was an intensely geographical event that affected people and places across Europe and beyond. This lecture will present dynamic, creative maps and other visualizations from the Holocaust Geographies Collaborative, whose interdisciplinary work has helped inspire the "spatial turn" in Holocaust Studies.

Presenter: Anne K. Knowles, PhD, McBride Professor of History, University of Maine, and Co-Founder of the Holocaust Geographies Collaborative
