The Hidden Holocaust: New Research on Excavations at an Extermination Camp
October 13, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm| Free
Biblical archeology Professor Richard Freund, the Maurice Greenberg Professor of history at the the University of Hartford, has used traditional and cutting edge techniques to shed new light on a range of subjects, from ancient Qumran, to the Holocaust. Dr. Freund will discuss his work at Sobibor, one of the six notorious Nazi death camps in Poland. Although the Nazis attempted to bury the camp and obliterate any evidence of its horrors, recent work has revealed elements about the Holocaust that were unknown nearly 70 years ago. This program is co-sponsored by the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center, Archeological Institute of America, Brodsky Jewish Community Library and Bais Abraham Congregation.
