Lecture: The Eye as Witness

At University of Nottingham Museum

Description

Professor Maiken Umbach, Professor of Modern History at the University of Nottingham, will give this introduction to the thinking and motivations behind the making of The Eye as Witness exhibition and virtual reality experience.

Leading the work, Professor Maiken Umbach said: “The urgency of taking a fresh look at the darkest moment of human history cannot be underestimated. We have relied too much on Nazi propaganda photos to visualise the horrors of the Holocaust. Focusing on the photos and testimonies of victims helps us understand issues that are sadly becoming increasingly pressing in the modern world, such as Anti-Semitism, racism, fake news, and prejudice.”
