Cultural anthropologist Natasha Zaretsky will explore how ordinary people grapple with political violence and genocide in Argentina, including the Holocaust, the political repression of the 1976-1983 dictatorship, and two 1990s terrorist attacks. In response, Jewish Argentines turned to memory as a way to demand justice and find spaces of belonging critical for personal and collective recovery. Dr. Zaretsky will discuss the ongoing legacies of these demands for justice and how Jewish memory has become an important way to imagine and build a future in Argentina.
