Ignorance, Abuse & Competition: The Politics of Holocaust Remembrance

February 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

In our era of globalization, Holocaust remembrance appears to be subject to profound changes. This talk attempts to outline the status, the present challenges, and the meaning of Holocaust remembrance in the increasingly diverse European societies, not the least during a moment of a perceived refugee crisis in Europe, as well as Racism and ever-growing Islamophobia, and at the same time, the global “competition” between the memory of the Holocaust and the crimes of European colonial powers. These are not new questions, but ones that are increasingly relevant and controversial.

Our speaker is Dr. Dirk Rupnow, Dean of the Faculty of Philosophy and History, University of Innsbruck and a former fellow at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
