GLOBAL GATHERING OF HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS
DESCENDANTS, EDUCATORS & FRIENDS
VIRTUAL. WORLDWIDE. FREE.
Marylin & Silvia will compare how their family members were treated and the reasons they were in Stutthof Concentration Camp at the same time. They will address the fraud by the Lithuanian government to declare Noreika innocent of crimes of genocide, and how his detention in Stutthof has been used as a misleading political tool for Lithuanian Holocaust deception. An Intimate Conversation: Between Two Descendants of Stutthof Concentration Camp Prisoners - Israeli-American Civic Action Network (israelusa.org)
SPEAKER: Björn Krondorfer, Regents' Professor The question of "ordinary antisemitism" will be explored through a personal story about the effects of the Holocaust and war memories in German society after 1945, especially as they are passed on generationally. The speaker's parents were 18years old when the war ended. His father was drafted into the German army at age 16 and ended up in the near vicinity of a Jewish slave labor camp in Poland; his mother escaped from the advancing Soviet Army. The talk concludes with remarks on the value of dialogical engagement between the communities affected by historical trauma due to state-sponsored violent ideologies.
