Description

Michael Rothberg (U Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), Holocaust Internationalism: The Witness as World-Traveller
Join Michael Rothberg, Director of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies Initiative, as he explores the half-century-long testimonial project of Auschwitz survivor and filmmaker Marceline Loridan-Ivens. Rothberg illuminates the ways in which Loridan-Ivens helps us to rethink recent approaches to the globalization of Holocaust memory, by shifting our attention from the discourse of human rights to that of anti-colonial internationalism.
