About this Event:

Professor Mary Fulbrook explores the inner conflicts of a Nazi functionary, Udo Klausa, the principal civilian administrator of Bedzin, a town 25 miles away from Auschwitz. Klausa considered himself a ‘decent man’, yet was responsible for implementing Nazi policies towards Jews in his area. Like many others after the war, he said he had known nothing about it. Using personal letters and testimony, Fulbrook examines his role during and after the war and looks at the heroic resistance to the Nazis from victims in the area.

Fulbrook is professor of German history at University College London. She is also author of A History of Germany 1918-2008 and The People’s State: East German Society from Hitler to Honecker.
