Public Memory and the Shoah

Thursday, February 1, 2024 - 09:00 to Friday, February 2, 2024 - 18:00

The efficacy of memory practices for social betterment is most often taken axiomatically and uncritically as an established fact. This interdisciplinary workshop launched a discussion with scholars and practitioners from multiple disciplines and perspectives engaged with Holocaust memory practices. Our goal is to describe and understand the relationship between Holocaust memory and public attitudes about antisemitism, race, democracy, discrimination and so on, and to think of new strategies for engaging the public.’
