The Holocaust and its legacy: identity, ideology, and race

As the Holocaust recedes further into the past, the question of how it has come to be remembered, how its stories have been passed down, and how it has shaped the world around us have become more pressing. In their new books, Avril Alba and David Slucki raise questions about what role the Holocaust has played in the formulation of ideas and identity in the postwar world. In this talk, Avril and David will explore the legacy of the Holocaust through contrasting lenses: David will look at the Holocaust’s impact on one family, and Avril will explore its global implications. David and Avril will discuss how these approaches help us examine Holocaust history and the fate of the Jews in the twentieth century. Avril Alba is senior lecturer in Holocaust Studies and Jewish Civilization at the University of Sydney. She is co-editor with Shirli Gilbert of Holocaust Memory and Racism in the Postwar World, author of The Holocaust Memorial Museum: Sacred Secular Space, and the curator of several major exhibitions including The Holocaust at the Sydney Jewish Museum. David Slucki is an author and historian based in Charleston, South Carolina, where he is an assistant professor in Jewish studies at the College of Charleston. He is the author of Sing This at My Funeral: A Memoir of Fathers and Sons and The International Jewish Labor Bund after 1945: Toward a Global History, and co-editor of In the Shadows of Memory: The Holocaust and the Third Generation and Laughter After: Humor and the Holocaust.
