Frank Bajohr (Munich): Holocaust Research: Achievements, Changes, Problems, and Challenges

24.06.2021, Vortrag, online

GHI London Joint Lecture

Modern German History Seminar, Institute of Historical Research, University of London

The last two and a half decades have seen a veritable boom in Holocaust research. This development coincided with a range of new research trends, perspectives, and approaches, which are markedly different from those that guided the pioneering work of scholars in the postwar years. The lecture discusses some of these new trends in detail, but also addresses problems and challenges like the ritualization of memory and nationalist functionalization of the Holocaust.
