Dr Anna Hájková

Dr Anna Hájková is a historian, feminist, and queer history activist. She works as associate professor of history at the University of Warwick. Her scholarship of the Holocaust addresses the society in extremis: relationships, loyalty, sexuality, and love. Her book manuscript on Theresienstadt ghetto was awarded both the Irma Rosenberg as well as Herbert Steiner prizes. Her pioneering work on prostitution among the Holocaust victims received the Catharine Stimpson Prize for Outstanding Feminist Scholarship. She is the first researcher to address the queer history of the Holocaust. She has written two books and edited another two in English, German, and Czech. In addition to the Holocaust studies, Anna explores the intellectual history of the Central European Communists, people who after the Second World War set up to build a socialist future.

These positions are rooted in political and social engagement: she serves on the board of the Czech Society for Queer Memory and is engaged in the UCU. She regularly presents her feminist critique in British, US American, German, Israeli, and Czech mass media. She has been active in commemoration of Marie Schmolka, a key player of Jewish and political emigration from 1930s Europe. She tweets at @ankahajkova

Gedenken an ermordete Psychiatrie-Patienten:Damit Theas Name nicht vergessen wird

"The mass murderer as mad genius/poet" was always going to be on the NYT front page. But here it reaches new lows. It's so sensationalist, so relentlessly solipsistic, so invested in itself as the fount of some hidden wisdom—a madness in its own way—that it's sickening to read.

Tahle solidarita od kolegy potesila. Zvlast vzhledem k ohlusujicimu tichu, respektive hejtech, lidi kolem casopisu, ktery se hlasi k levicovemu feminismu, a kam jsem roky psala. http://denikreferendum.cz/clanek/30650-proc-potrebujeme-levicovy-pohled-na-dejiny

Ist die BVG Tageskarte aber teuer geworden! Ich liebe Euch auch, aber 9,60€??

V Praze je nedostatek bytů a vhodných stavebních pozemků. Takže kde jinde stavět než v prudkém svahu plném stromů. A co jinýho stavět než luxusní rezidence. Bytová krize a městská zeleň pořešena 🤷🏻‍♂️

If I can make people buy a $450 hyaluronic acid serum at goop instead of the $9 almost identical product at Trader Joe’s my talents are wasted in medicine

Freue mich, morgen endlich die TransTrans Ausstellung im @GayMuseum zu besuchen! Hab viel davon gehört. (Es ist nur ein sehr kurzer Berlinbesuch -- somber reason)

.@AHAhistorians was in the process of writing a strong letter to @USNatArchives that "protests this purposeful effort to mislead visitors and blur the historical record." We will still send a letter, but now revising in light of NARA apology: https://www.archives.gov/press/press-releases/2020
