Producing a ‘Usable’ Past: Holocaust Distortion and New Threats to the Memory of the Holocaust

March 26 @ 6:00 pm

The UNO Department of History welcomes Dr. Jan Grabowski as this year’s Richard Dean Winchell Lecturer.

Join us on March 26th at the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center for light refreshments starting at 6:00pm followed by an in-person lecture at 7:00pm.

Dr. Grabowski, University of Ottawa, specializes in Jewish-Polish relations in German-occupied Poland during World War II. Unlike holocaust deniers, people, institutions, and states engaging in Holocaust distortion do not deny the factuality of the Jewish catastrophe. They simply deny that their people, their ethnic group, or their nation, had anything to do with the event. Using the massive resources of the state, they falsify the historical narrative in order to make it compatible with various national myths. This talk will focus on Poland, a place where a great majority of the victims of the Holocaust were put to death and a place where Holocaust distortion has become a quasi-official policy of the state.

Co-sponsored by UNO’s Sam and Frances Fried Holocaust and Genocide Academy.
