Dr. Katrin Reichelt is a specialist in the history of the Holocaust in eastern Europe, with a particular focus on the German occupation of Latvia between 1941 and 1944 and the city of Minsk in Belarus in 1942 and 1943. Based on her most recent research in archives in Minsk and Kiev, Dr. Reichelt will talk specifically about the Righteous Gentiles in the Baltic states who risked their lives to shelter and to save the lives of Jews being hunted by the German SS and police.
There is no charge for admission and the public is invited both to Dr. Reichelt's lecture and to the reception preceding the lecture -- the reception will begin at 5:30 PM.
This event is free but we do ask that you RSVP to Megan Ferenczy at 804-257-5400, ext. 234.
