Share Death by Hair: from Colonial South West Africa to Nazi Germany

Event Details

There have been times in history when the colour and texture of hair has been used to judge individuals and groups ‘racially valueless’. UCL Museums and Collections own a rare Haarfarbentafel (hair colour chart) manufactured in the early 20th century as a ‘standard’ scale for hair hierarchy. Such hair sample boxes have been called ‘killing machines’. Event includes talks, film, audience debate.

Participants: Dr Debbie Challis, Kandace Chimbiri, Mat Paskins, Dr Carole Reeves
