We would like to draw your attention to the conference “The Victims and Places of Reprisals in Occupied Europe”, which will be organized by the Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial in cooperation with the Research Center for Contemporary History Hamburg and the Institute for the History of the German Jews. It will take place from April 28th until April 30th, 2015 at the Research Center for Contemporary History Hamburg.
This conference aims to examine backgrounds and after-effects of German reprisals in occupied Europe during WWII. We want to look at these issues from an international and comparative perspective and discuss the differing German occupation policies and forms of collaboration in the respective countries. The following questions will be discussed: How do we define reprisals? What was their legal basis and how were they justified? What kind of resistance activities preceded them? Who was in charge of organising these reprisals and who carried them out? Who were the victims and what exactly happened to them?
