This thesis contributes to the literature by examining Jewish families’ victimization during the Holocaust in Italy from a Geographic Information Science (GIS) and historical geographical perspective. It is guided by the following questions: What were the spatio-temporal […]
Despite the fact that families are specifically targeted by genocide perpetrators, genocide and Holocaust researchers have paid relatively little attention to how patterns of victimization of individuals might differ from those of families.
