May 19 @ 2:00 pm - 12:00 am

Event Navigation

(FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE VISIT OUR LITTLE LECTURES PROGRAM PAGE.) For more than one hundred years, at least one concentration camp has existed somewhere on Earth. First used as a battlefield strategy, camps have evolved with each passing decade, and have been used to control or liquidate “undesirable” civilian populations across the globe. Parkersburg-born author and journalist Andrea Pitzer will discuss her searing work, One Long Night: A Global History of Concentration Camps, and how a broader look at this heartbreaking phenomenon can change the way nations live up to the promise, “Never again.” Pitzer is also the author of Icebound: Shipwrecked at the Edge of the World, and The Secret History of Vladimir Nabokov. Her articles have been published in The New York Review of Books and The Washington Post.
