Auschwitz, 70 years Later and the Interpretation of Memory

Sun, 30 Apr, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

 

How do we understand the many different interpretations and symbolism(s) that Auschwitz assumed? Since its liberation in January 1945 and the creation of the Museum the following year, the memory of this notorious Nazi death camp has often been twisted, distorted or even abused. What remains clear, however, is that the policy of the communist government in Poland regarding Auschwitz, and the narrative created after the war, exerted tremendous impact on the awareness of the post-war generations in Poland and Polish-Jewish relations. Inevitably, the distortions of memory shed light on the lack of awareness and comprehension of the different meanings and symbolism of Auschwitz by the post-World War II generations.  

This program is presented in partnership with The Gordon Center for Performing Arts.
