Last Stop in Lwów: Janowska as a Hybrid Camp

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The Janowska camp complex in Lwów, which was responsible for the murder of at least 80,000 Jews, has received relatively little academic treatment. The camp is of particular interest due to its hybrid nature as slave labor camp, transit camp, and dedicated killing site. Using a wide variety of source materials and approaches, this article details and analyzes these connected functions, arguing that this unique combination of activities reveals many new insights into our typology of camps as well as the role of Janowska in the Holocaust in Galicia.
