Imre Kertész Kolleg Jena

Joint Annual Conference 2021

23. March 2021 - 16:37

The Holocaust and the Cold War: Culture and Justice  

May 26 – 28, 2021
Organizers:  Fritz Bauer Institut,  Frankfurt am Main and  Imre Kertész Kolleg, Jena

The conference will examine to what extent the Cold War affected representations of the Shoah in historiography, legal investigations and trials as well as the arts and will ask how this has determined political discourse until today. We will take stock of the confrontational nature of the Cold War and discuss how the Holocaust became a discursive and ideological weapon in the arsenals of both the West and the Eastern Bloc.

The conference will take place from May 26 to 28, 2021 and will be held entirely online. All information will be available shortly on the conference website, which will be launched on Mai 10: holocaust-and-cold-war.
