  • Revising the Holocaust: Deepening our understanding of Nazi-directed Genocide

    When linked to the Holocaust, the term “historical revision” often implies a soft-pedaling of Nazi Germany’s mid-twentieth-century attempt to destroy Europe’s Jewish population. Distinct from these pernicious efforts, historical understandings of the Holocaust have nonetheless evolved, situating it with broader scholarship on genocide, the experiences of refugees and migrants, and evolving concepts of human rights. Join us for a panel conversation to discuss new directions in Holocaust scholarship and education.
