Last Days of Theresienstadt:
The Eyewitness Testimony of Eva Noack-Mosse

Thursday, November 12, 2020 | 12pm | Free Live Webinar

Registration Link:

In February of 1945, during the final months of the Third Reich, Eva Noack-Mosse was deported to the Nazi concentration camp of Theresienstadt in Czechoslovakia. A trained journalist and expert typist, she was put to work in the Central Evidence Office of the camp, documenting the myriad details of the camp’s operation as required by the SS. With access to camp records, she also recorded statistics and her own observations in a secret diary. Noack-Mosse also gathered information about earlier events within the walled fortress, witnessed the defeat and departure of the Nazis, saw the arrival of the International Red Cross and the Soviet Army, assisted in the camp’s closure, and aided displaced persons.

Join us for a conversation with scholar Skye Doney, who co-translated the remarkable eyewitness testimony of Noack-Mosse contained in the pages of her book Last Days of Theresienstadt.
