Talk at The Frick Collection on Tuesday, October 17 for a lecture at 4 p.m. by Dr. Paul Jaskot, Professor of Art History and Director of the Wired! Lab, Duke University. Prof. Jaskot’s presentation will address how Nazi perpetrators of the Holocaust thought of their building projects and, conversely, how victims experienced these oppressive spaces. The lecture also explores how recent methods in Digital Humanities—particularly digital mapping—can be used to investigate architectural plans and witness testimonies to raise new questions about the historical significance of the Holocaust.
