I had the pleasure of covering Dr. Tomaz Jardim’s recent Trent University lecture on the Mauthausen Concentration Camp Trial.

Dr. Jardim, who received his undergraduate degree in History at Trent in the late nineties, has garnered plenty of attention and respect for his work on the Third Reich, the Holocaust, and post-war military justice. Before being named as full-time faculty at Ryerson, he held the prestigious role of post-doctoral fellow at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.  His current book, The Mauthausen Trial: American Military Justice in Germany, has been receiving very positive reviews. Leaning, as it does, on in-depth interviews of participants, his work stands as the definitive study of the Mauthausen Trial.

Much of the lecture touches on this book.

Looking for other great academic lectures?  Keep your eye on this blog.  I’m in the process of trying to set up a regular lecture series podcast.  Hopefully, we’ll have some more great talks soon.
