The Holocaust: An Unfinished History – Dan Stone at Chelsea History Festival

Date: 28-09-2023 Hour: 17:00

Event place: National Army Museum

The Chelsea History Festival is back for its fifth year, bringing world-class history writing to the heart of London.

Dan Stone reframes the Holocaust by revealing how countries across Europe collaborated with Nazi Germany.

About the event

While the Holocaust is much-discussed, many aspects of its history have been overlooked and misunderstood. Join expert Dan Stone as he presents a new perspective, demonstrating the full impact of the Holocaust across Europe, from the Second World War to present day.

Stone will reveal how almost half of all Holocaust victims were killed outside of concentration camps, meeting their fate in ghettos or in their homes. He will show how people across Europe collaborated with Nazi efforts to eradicate the Jewish population. He will also reflect on the widely held beliefs in eugenics that informed Nazi ideology and continue to proliferate to this day.
