What do we remember? How do we remember? Who remembers?
Speakers: Prof. James Young, Dariusz Popiela, Prof. Omer Bartov
Moderator: Dr. Edyta Gawron
2022 marked the 80th anniversary of “Aktion Reinhard” – the German plan to murder all the Jews of Poland living in the General Government. To mark this anniversary, Galicia Jewish Museum, the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre and the Ghetto Fighters House invites for a program titled 80 Years After “Aktion Reinhard”: The Industrial Killing of European Jewry – a series of four online lectures given by some of the most recognized scholars in this field, each one focusing on a different aspect of the Holocaust and related to this key event.
During the last event, we will discuss issues related to memory.
What Do We Remember? How Do We Remember? Who Remember?
Prof. James Young will describe the process of commemoration at the Concentration and Death Camps itself. Prof. Omer Bartov will look at the processes of transmission of the memory of the Holocaust in Israel. Finally, an activist Dariusz Popiela will show how small communities and nongovernmental organizations work together to bring back the memory of the Holocaust in the context of rural Poland today.
The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Edyta Gawron of the Jagiellonian University.
All the lectures will take place live on Zoom. Programs will be in English with simultaneous translation to Polish. Recorded lectures will be available later at the Galicia Jewish Museum YouTube channel.
In English, with translation to Polish. Free admission.
