Crime, darkness and despair: infanticide in Cold War Vienna – a talk at Loughborough University

5 November 2014

Dr Helen Steele  of the University of Leicester will be talking about Crime, darkness and despair: infanticide in Cold War Vienna.

Post-war Vienna was an unsettled city where lawlessness was rife. On the basis of police reports, Dr Steele moves beyond the traditional topics of the black market and the (mis)behaviour of the Allied occupation forces to look at crimes related to the darkness of the city. She then focuses on infanticide as a crime of despair.

This is an open lecture, with all welcome.

Wednesday 5 November – 5 pm

Room K105,  Herbert Manzoni Building, Loughborough University
