Post-deportation and Holocaust exhumations

NIAS Seminar

Jean-Marc Dreyfus, reader in history from the University of Manchester, discusses his project "Post-deportation and Holocaust exhumations: a comparative approach to the French and Dutch national missions in search of corpses in Germany, 1945-1960."


It is not known or remembered that European states after WWII set up search missions in order to recover the corpses of their nationals deported to Nazi concentration and death camps. My project will handle the techniques used by the French and Dutch missions in comparison to fulfill such a task. Forensic medicine, politics and visual culture will be described.
