Conference: December 4th to December 5th 2017
The international conference, with about twenty well-known researchers from all around the world, will feature the state of the art of academic research on the postwar history of European Jews. As the vast majority of surviving European Jews endured Nazi occupation, the focus of the symposium will be on those who experienced the war in different countries of the continent. In the postwar years, Europe was a »savage continent«, trying
to come to terms with perhaps the most lethal moment in modern human history. Amidst the ruins, poverty and destruction, surviving Jews were trying to rebuild their lives and communities, fi nd their postwar identities, and face the recent Jewish catastrophe. The presentations will address these diverse postwar Jewish experiences.
The conference and the panel discussion will be held in English and are open to the public. For a detailed program please visit: http://tinyurl.com/JewsinPostwarEurope
