INTERNATIONAL HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY

ICONS OF THE HOLOCAUST: SYMBOLIZING THE SHOAH IN HISTORY AND MEMORY

Wednesday, January 27, 2021, 6:30 p.m. via Zoom

The railway cars, the Arbeit Macht Frei signs, the number six million, Anne Frank—all have become enduring icons of the Holocaust. Jewish Studies scholar Oren Stier will discuss how and why these icons—an object, a phrase and a number, a person—have come to stand in for the Holocaust. He will explore their origins, how they have been used and reproduced, how they are under threat, and what the future holds for Holocaust memory.
