The Preservation of Jewish Monuments in Eastern Europe: Commemorating Holocaust Sites

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

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.

Dr. Samuel Gruber

Dr. Samuel Gruber has been active in the documentation, protection, and preservation of this historic since 1990, when he organized the first countrywide surveys of Jewish heritage sites for the World Monuments Fund and the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, and organized the first international conference on the Future of Jewish Monuments.  That wok led to the restoration of many synagogues and cemeteries and the creation of new memorials at Holocaust-related sites. More recently, most such projects have been organized locally.  Dr. Gruber presently directs Gruber Heritage Global, a cultural resource consulting firm and is president of the not-for-profit International Survey of Jewish Monuments.  He lives in Syracuse, New York, where since 1994, he has taught art history and Jewish Studies at Syracuse University and is also Visiting Associate Professor of Jewish Studies at Cornell University.
