Holocaust survivor's daughter in legal battle with historian over claim of lesbian liaison with Nazi guard

Warwick University academic ‘broke German court ruling that protected dead woman’s reputation’

The daughter of a survivor has begun a legal battle to protect her deceased mother’s reputation from allegations that she had a lesbian relationship with an SS guard.

Earlier this year, a German court ruled that Dr Anna Hájková, associate professor of modern continental European history at Warwick University, had violated the woman’s postmortem personality rights by publicly claiming that she had a sexual relationship with the Nazi guard while imprisoned in concentration camps.
