Summer School "Perspectives on the Holocaust. Dealing with mass atrocities and their global relevance",

The fifth Bergen-Belsen International Summer School will take place from the 28th of July until the 5th of August 2018 and will be organised together with the Anne Frank educational centre in Frankfurt/Main. This year, we would like to discuss the ways in which societies from all over the world deal with the Holocaust and other mass atrocities. We aim to gather young academics in their master- or PhD studies and/or young professionals at the beginning of their careers with an affinity for Holocaust- Genocide- and Memory Studies and (political) education. The programme will take place both in the Bergen-Belsen Memorial and in Frankfurt/Main and will consist of lectures, workshops and tours.
