The Violent Order of Space: Spatial Development and Dynamics of Violence at Gusen Concentration Camp


NievollMy PhD-project deals with the relationship between space and violence in Nazi concentration camps, using the example of the Gusen concentration camp(s) from 1939 to 1945. I analyze how the spatial structure of the camp was changed over time and how this corresponded with the dynamics of violence. From a bottom-up perspective, I also investigate how prisoners experienced and shaped the changing physical and social reality of the camp.
