Simon Wiesenthal Conference - Collaboration in Eastern Europe during World War II and the Holocaust
Co-organized by the USHMM Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies and the Simon Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies, this interdisciplinary conference will bring together scholars in the humanities and social sciences to forge new analytical perspectives on collaboration in Eastern Europe.
Panels will address memory, trials, and the role of institutions such as the police, state administration, and press in the destruction of Jews and Roma in the Holocaust.
Doris Bergen, the Chancellor Rose and Ray Wolfe Professor of Holocaust Studies at the University of Toronto, will deliver the keynote address.
This program has been made possible by a grant from the Curt C. and Else Silberman Foundation to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Additional support was provided by the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah, and the Future Fund of the Republic of Austria.
