Panel discussion

A multigenerational conversation

Alfred Edward Laurence


On April 29, the 77th anniversary of the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp, the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site will open a new special exhibition, “Dachau Trials – Crimes, Proceedings, and Responsibility.” Both events are closely connected to the life of Alfred Edward Laurence, a prisoner in the Dachau concentration camp between February and October 1937.

His daughter Virginia Laurence and granddaughter Annemarie Wadlow will be guests of the Dachau Memorial Site on April 29 and speak with Dr. Christoph Thonfeld (head of the Research Department) about the life and work of their father and grandfather. Approached as a family legacy and thus from a multigenerational perspective, the main topics will be dealing with Nazi persecution, the effects of concentration camp imprisonment, and the criminal prosecution of injustices suffered.

Questions from the audience will follow the discussion.
