The Holocaust and Europe

Research Trends, Pedagogical Approaches, and Political Challenges

4-7 November 2019, Munich, Germany

For the first time ever, a special Lessons & Legacies Conference will take place in Europe, the continent where the Holocaust occurred. A central goal of the conference is to stimulate international debate and exchange among Holocaust scholars, not least between those from North America, Europe, and Israel.

The Conference will reflect particularly on the legacy of WWII and the Holocaust, and the consequences for Holocaust research and education vis-à-vis growing nationalist and right-wing populist challenges. It will include visits to relevant memorial sites, documentation centers, and authentic places of Nazi rule and the Holocaust.
