LIVING WITH THE HOLOCAUST
- Lectures & Seminars
- Special Event
In the eighth decade after the end of World War II and the liberation of the concentration camps, this symposium explores the long-term effects of the Holocaust on the survivors, their descendants, and our society as a whole. “Living with the Holocaust”—this first and foremost refers to the generation of survivors. How have they dealt with their suffering, and how have memories, experiences, and traumas been passed on within their families? Yet the title also addresses the majority society, which has engaged with the fate of survivors and their families in many different ways: how has this engagement affected the larger social, political, and historical developments that have taken place since the end of the war? Finally, the symposium also looks to the future. How will we—and how should we—deal with the legacies of the Shoah at a time when we are not only approaching the end of the era of the witness, but when the interpretation and the relevance of the Nazi past is becoming increasingly contested?
