Much history of the Holocaust has focused on the perpetrators of the genocide; particularly what was done to the victims and why. This conference seeks papers which address victims and their experiences of the Holocaust. Papers on the social and cultural histories of the victims are particularly encouraged as are examinations of methodological approaches to writing victimsı history including explorations of daily life, gender, age, etc. Papers on camp, ghetto, hiding, and post-war experiences of survivors including the DP experience are all welcome. Scholars may submit papers which examine not only Jewish victims but also non-Jewish victims including (but not only): Roma and Sinti, Poles and other Slavs, political and religious dissidents including dissident clergy, Jehovahıs Witnesses, and Communists, homosexuals, persons with physical or mental disabilities, POWs, those the regime deemed ³asocial² and others. Selected papers from the conference will be published.
