This year’s Summer School

For several years now, a primarily economic development has had a huge impact on debates on memory and remembrance in relation to the atrocities committed under the Nazi regime: globalisation. (Holocaust) memory has become more and more transnational, but remains heavily influenced by national and local politics of memory. Its expression and dissemination however has changed and continues to do so as our societies are increasingly digitized.

On this basis we want to discuss questions such as:

What challenges might be connected to the transnationalization of Holocaust memory both in a scientific and political sense?

Who are the actors of transnational memory?

Which manifestations and institutions of transnational memory can we find nowadays?
More information on the programme, speakers and workshops will follow shortly.
