Holocaust Memorial Lecture 2023
Tracing the stories of many Romani and Jewish victims, survivors, historians, and activists, Ari Joskowicz vividly describes the experiences of Hitler’s forgotten victims and charts the evolving postwar relationship between Roma and Jews over the course of nearly a century. During the Nazi era, Jews and Roma shared little in common besides their simultaneous persecution. Yet the decades of entwined struggles for recognition have deepened Romani-Jewish relations. They now center not only on commemorations of past genocides or compensation practices but also on contemporary debates about antiracism and the future of democracy.
The event is free and open to all, but we ask that you please RSVP here.
