Robert D. Resnick | Voices from the Holocaust: The Story of the Ravensbrück Archive

May 20, 2019

This is the last part of the ongoing series where R&T re-podcasts past lectures held by previous honorary doctors at HT-faculties of Lund University.

Robert D. Resnick is a real estate entrepreneur and a philanthropist. He chairs the Ravensbrück campaign of the Lund University Foundation. As you will hear in this lecture, he was an exchange student at Lund University in 1971−72, and has over the years worked for the University in various capacities within the context of the Lund University Foundation.

Resnick’s most important contribution to Lund University involves the digitisation of the Ravensbrück Archive at the University Library. Thanks to his personal contribution and his persistent work in attracting donations to this project, the library has been able to digitise and translate into English large parts of the archive, thereby making it accessible to a wide circle of researchers and a keen general public through a web portal.
