The Preservation of Jewish Monuments in Eastern Europe: Commemorating Holocaust Sites
Commemorating Holocaust Sites – In a sense, every place in eastern Europe where Jews once lived but now do not should be considered a Holocaust-related site. A goal of educators and activists in many countries has been to bring back the history of Jews in a place especially when those communities were irrevocably destroyed. This talk will focus on the commemoration of those destroyed communities and their murdered members and how the places of their suffering – ghettos, deportation centers, concentration, labor and death camps, and mass grave sites are being remembered and identified. Dr. Gruber will discuss key examples of the memorialization process a Holocaust-related sites in Germany, Poland, Lithuania and the Czech Republic.
