Holocaust Memorial Day Lecture

Friday, 25 January 2019 - Friday, 25 January 2019
7pm

A single word — Auschwitz — is often used to encapsulate the totality of persecution and suffering involved in the Holocaust. But this obscures the fuller story, and the multiple legacies of Nazi persecution across generations and continents. Professor Mary Fulbrook will speak about her new book RECKONINGS: LEGACIES OF NAZI PERSECUTION AND THE QUEST FOR JUSTICE Chair: Michael Horowitz QC

Free Entry: Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church 235 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8EP

In 'Reckonings', Fulbrook explores the continuing impact of the Holocaust over the decades. She exposes the shocking disjuncture between official myths about 'dealing with the past' and the extent to which the vast majority of Nazi perpetrators evaded justice. She situates the experiences of survivors in the changing contexts in which they sought to make sense of unprecedented suffering, and reveals ways in which subsequent generations were affected by growing up in the shadow of this past.

The Holocaust is not mere ‘history’ and the contemporary memorial landscape barely hints at the maelstrom of reverberations of the Nazi era at a personal level.
