Remembrance and Geomedia: remembering, teaching and researching the Holocaust through GIS

Tim Cole

University of Bristol, Vereinigtes Königreich

In this lecture I outline some of the learning of a decade-long international collaboration between historians, architectural historians, geographers, cartographers and GIScientists. The focus of the group’s interdisciplinary research has been to examine the potential of GIS tools and geo-visualization methods to generate new understanding of the Holocaust. As well as discussing some of those research findings that uncover spatial patterns in the implementation and experiences of genocide, I examine the limits of GIS that our project encountered, and the ways that we have sought to work with and beyond those limits. One thing that we have begun exploring is what a GIS of place and not simply of space might entail, that would allow us to map victim experience and not simply the more abstract geography of the perpetrators.
