A seminar jointly organized by the House of the Wannsee Conference, Memorial and Educational Site, the Massuah International Institute for Holocaust Studies and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.
In the year 2015, the State of Israel and the Federal Republic of Germany celebrate 50 years of diplomatic relations. The memory of the past is a formative element for both countries’ identity and links both Israel and Germany by a unique and strong bond.
In both countries, the memory culture and educating the new generations about the past are of utmost importance. How has remembering the Holocaust impacted the cultural discourse in Israel and Germany? How to remember and educate about the past between a particularistic and universal approach? What role does religion play in the shaping of memory? With the Shoah becoming a more and more distant event and, with changing demography in the respective societies, what challenges lie ahead for remembrance culture and
Holocaust education today?
Leading academic experts from Israel and Germany will discuss these issues together with professionals, students, practitioners in the field of remembrance and education at a seminar to be held on Thursday, 25th of June 2015 at the House of the Wannsee Conference Memorial and Educational Site in Berlin.
