Excellent lecture series from The Holocaust Exhibition and Learning Centre #holocaust

The Holocaust Exhibition and Learning Centre at The University of Huddersfield, UK is a hidden gem. I don’t remember where I heard of them - perhaps in this very discussion list. They have an excellent series of free, online lectures that I have been attending. The subjects are interesting, and the speakers have been first-rate. I couldn’t help but notice that attendance is low - in each of the Zoom lectures that I listened to, there were not more than 25 attendees, which is really a shame. 

Recent topics included Creating the National Institute of Holocaust Documentation at the USHMM (United Stated Holocaust Memorial Museum); and Antisemitism and the Russian Revolution. Lectures yet to come include Jewish Refugees Find a Haven in the Dominican Republic; Sources of the Holocaust and from Concentration Camps: Documents and Personal Items from the Arolsen Archives; Shores of Light, Salento 1945,1947: Film Streaming and Director Talk.
 
I highly recommend these lectures.
