Art and Culture in the Terezín Ghetto

Symposium

The symposium explores in four lectures the history of the "exception ghetto" Terezín from four different angles. Wolfgang Benz, Berlin, speaks about Terezín as a place of deception and destruction; Inka Bertz, Berlin, considers the visual artists imprisoned there; Anna Hájková, Coventry, analyzes the ghetto as a place of unequals, and Hanno Loewy, Hohenems, examines the cinematic and photographic propaganda in the Terezín, Warsaw, and Lodz ghettos.
