Manchester Jewish Museum
Part of The Wiener Holocaust Library’s Recovery & Repair: Supporting Jewish Family Histories of the Holocaust in Britain ITS event series, Fate Unknown explores the remarkable, little-known story of the search for the missing after the Holocaust.
Join the co-curators, Professor Dan Stone and Dr Christine Schmidt, as they present The Wiener Holocaust Library’s family document collections and the International Tracing Service archive to illustrate the legacy of the ongoing search for missing victims.
Following their talk, a panel of distinguished speakers will discuss patterns of persecution and survival found in Jewish and other archives: Dr Pamela Aveyard (Imperial War Museum North), on Jewish refugees in Belfast; Elise Bath (Wiener Holocaust Library), on Roma and Sinti victims in the ITS archive; and Professor Cathy Gelbin (University of Manchester), on the creation of the Archive of Memory, among other speakers.
