Naming the Aggressor: On Memory and Accusation in Holocaust Testimony

  • 513 Fayerweather Hall Columbia University New York, NY 10027

Hannah Pollin-Galay will discuss how we often associate the Holocaust with faceless, nameless violence. But, yet, there are Jewish Holocaust witnesses who attribute their suffering to the wicked acts of social intimates. Focusing on narratives of Lithuanian Jews, this lecture compares different cultural modes of remembering Holocaust aggression.
