The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and American Jewish Committee (AJC) invites you to a timely conversation with leading experts focused on Holocaust issues, anti-semitism, and illiberalism within Europe. The discussion will explore the current trend of historic revisionism taking place in Central and Eastern Europe. The reemergence of disputed Holocaust narratives will be explored and placed within the context of other challenging issues in Europe including rising anti-Semitism, nationalism and illiberal democracy. The panel will discuss why Holocaust issues and anti-semitism are reemerging again, and how the U.S. and European civil societies and the international Jewish community can respond to such challenges. The joint GMF-AJC event will take place during United States annual weeklong observance of the Holocaust, commencing with "Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day," or Yom HaShoah Ve-Hagevurah, as it is officially called in Hebrew. This year, Yom HaShoah will be observed on Thursday, April 12. Yom HaShoah also marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
This event is off-the-record.
