Holocaust memory is a creature of film, television, radio, architecture, and the print media. How will Holocaust memory fare in the era of digital interactive media? Considered from an ethical perspective, Holocaust memory is not a value in and of itself. How and where, if at all, does Holocaust memory impact government and community-driven decisions? Join The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education and University of Cincinnati- Blue Ash to explore these critical questions. A dessert reception will follow.
Dr. Wulf Kansteiner is professor of history at Binghamton University. His focus is on the representation and collective memory of World War II and the Holocaust in Germany, particularly mass media representations of the events in television, as well as their impact on postwar historiography and philosophy. Kansteiner is co-editor of the journal Memory Studies and author of In Pursuit of German Memory: History, Television, and Politics after Auschwitz, The Politics of Memory in Postwar Europe and co-editor of Historical Representation and Historical Truth.
