An examination of the chilling role architecture played in constructing Auschwitz.
The Evidence Room is a powerful installation which reconstructs key objects used in the forensic analysis of the architecture of Auschwitz. Historian Robert Jan van Pelt introduced the objects as evidence in a court case to demonstrate that Auschwitz was purposefully designed as a death camp.
As part of the Water Institute's WaterTalks lecture series, Professor John Hartig, Fulbright Scholar serving as the Fulbright Canada Research Chair in Global Governance at Balsillie School of International Affairs in Waterloo, presents, "Bringing Conservation to Cities: Lessons From Building the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge."
Light refreshments will be provided.
