“Building Nazi Occupied Krakow: Digital and Analog Approaches to the Spaces of the Holocaust"

Plans for rebuilding Krakow during its WWII Nazi occupation were ambitious and followed Adolf Hitler’s goal to rebuild cities such as Nuremberg and Berlin. Also ambitious were the regime’s Holocaust goals of concentrating and ultimately murdering the Jewish population of Krakow. Comparing Nazi plans, drawings, and photographs to digital renderings of the Jewish ghetto, Professor Jaskot shows how spatial visualizations help us to see how the ambitions for establishing Nazi presence complemented but also contradicted spatial planning for the threatened Jewish community.
