Join us for a conversation on "This sophisticated hell of murder and misery: My Grandfather’s Journey from National Socialist Camps to Postwar Ostracism and Oblivion"  by Dr. Birgit Hebel-Bauridl, American Studies University of Regensburg.


In an account that is both personal and contextualized within larger questions of memory, transgenerational trauma, and epistemic injustice, Dr. Bauridl will discuss the experience of her grandfather, who was persecuted for treason by the Nazi regime and criminalized in a way that stigmatized him long after 1945.
