Holocaust Memory, Antisemitism, and Political Contestation in Contemporary Europe

In this course, we examine how the Holocaust is remembered in contemporary Europe, and the ways it is invoked in relation to antisemitism as well as to other, contested major issues in the European public discourse, such as immigration, treatment of refugees, attitudes towards LGBTQ communities and women's rights, responses to other mass atrocities and crises like Covid-19. More broadly, we explore the way Holocaust memory has become a "site of tension" between Western and Eastern Europe, as well as between the different sides on the political spectrum from the far left to the far right across Europe.
