The year 2022 marks the 80th anniversary of “Aktion Reinhard” and the beginning of the mass killing of European Jews. Three killing centers were established as part of ‘Operation Reinhard’: Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka. The mass killing escalated and continues in three other killing centres - Chelmno, Majdanek and Auschwitz - as well as at killing sites, ghettos, and camps.
To mark this anniversary, Galicia Jewish Museum, the Johannesburg Holocaust &Genocide Centre, and the Ghetto Fighters House have organized a series of programs titled:
"80 Years After Aktion Reinhard: The Industrial Killing of European Jewry".
The series will include four online lectures given by some of the most recognized scholars in the field of Holocaust research with each speaker focusing on a different aspect of the Holocaust that is related to this history.
