The near-horizon region of black holes near extremality is universally AdS2-like. In this talk I will concentrate on the simplest example of AdS2 x S2 as the near-horizon of (near-)extreme Reissner-Nordstrom. I will first explain the SL(2) transformation properties of the spherically symmetric linear perturbations of AdS2 x S2 and show how their backreaction leads to the Reissner-Nordstrom black hole. This backreaction with boundary condition change is called an anabasis. I will then show that the linear Einstein equation near AdS2 x S2, with or without additional matter, enjoys an accidental symmetry that may be thought of as an on-shell large diffeomorphism of AdS2.
