Sarah Helm on Ravensbrück and David Cesarani on Germany 1933-49

Sarah Helm
David Cesarani
Chair: Anne Sebba

Ravensbrück was the only concentration camp with solely female occupants; today it is barely known. Sarah Helm has written the definitive account of the camp, singling out many acts of heroism among the atrocities.Drawing on newly-translated testaments and research, David Cesarani’s Final Solution: The Fate of the Jews 1933-49 demonstrates the surprising lack of inevitability in the events that culminated in the Holocaust. The authors will be talking to Anne Sebba.

Sarah Helm was a reporter on The Sunday Times and diplomatic editor for The Independent before becoming first the Jerusalem, and then the Brussels, correspondent for the same paper. Her first book was A Life in Secrets.

David Cesarani is Research Professor in History at Royal Holloway, London. The author of several prize-winning books, he has advised many institutions, NGOs and government bodies on Holocaust and post-Holocaust issues.
