Vienna’s five Jewish cemeteries are potent sites for construction and contestation of Austria’s Jewish heritage.
Dr. Tim Corbett will discuss issues raised in his forthcoming book about their destruction during the Holocaust and the post-war politics surrounding this form of cultural erasure of the achievements of centuries of Jewish Viennese men and women. A historian, editor, and translator, Dr. Corbett specializes in the modern cultural history of Austrian Jews. He was named as the inaugural 2018 Prins Fellow at the Center for Jewish History in New York.
Event will be moderated by Prof. Laura Morowitz, Art Historian.
