Simon Wiesenthal (1908-2005) was a survivor of Nazi death camps who dedicated his life to documenting the crimes of the Holocaust and to hunting down the perpetrators still at large. Marwell, in his lecture at Clark, will tell the story of the international manhunt and forensic investigation into the whereabouts and identification of the infamous Nazi doctor, Josef Mengele, dubbed the “angel of death” for his crimes at the Auschwitz concentration camp. The lecture falls upon the 20th anniversary of the discovery of Mengele’s body, and the use of unpublished photographs and documents will all add to this look behind the scenes of one of the largest, most complex historical mysteries ever solved.
