21st Workshop on the History and Memory of National Socialist Camps and Extermination Sites
The 21st Workshop on History and Memory of National Socialist Camps and Extermination Sites” will take place in May 2016 in Aix-en-Provence (France) with the topic “Between Collaboration and Resistance”.
The workshop is always held at locations related to the overall topic of National Socialist camps and mass extermination sites. In 2016 this will be the memorial site of Les Milles near the town of Aix-en-Provence (France). The history of the Provence region and the local internment camps will serve as a springboard for discussing the complex relations between collaboration and resistance.
The “Workshop on the History and Memory of National Socialist Camps and Extermination Sites” has been organized annually by university graduates for university graduates since 1994. The program consists of excursions and presentations given by young graduates on current research topics related to this theme. A collective volume with articles on the lectures is published after each workshop. The aim of the workshop is to give young graduates the chance to discuss their work in a friendly atmosphere, to enable networking of university graduates from different countries and disciplines and to promote research on marginalized topics.
The 21st workshop is supported by the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah.
