October 11th-12th, 2019
The International Colloquium “Contemporary Memorialisation of the Holocaust in Central and Eastern European Countries” is organised by the “Elie Wiesel” National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania within the framework of the “Holocaust Memoryscapes” project, financed by a grant of Ministry of Research and Innovation, CNCS – UEFISCDI (project number PN-III-P1-1.1-TE-2016-0811, within PNCDI III).
Our interdisciplinary colloquium focuses on the contemporary memorialisation of the Holocaust in Central and Eastern European Countries through Memory-Work and Heritage Mechanisms. The objective is to deepen the understanding of the Holocaust memory-making mechanisms, including both state and non-state agencies of memorializing the Holocaust with the emphasis being put on the role of memorial vectors in directly engaging the audience with Jewish and Romani histories, in an attempt to critically analyse and challenge the concept of shared history and memorializing the atrocities of the past.
