Much history of the Holocaust has focused on the perpetrators of the genocide; particularly what was done to the victims and why. This conference addresses victims and their experiences of the Holocaust. Keynote addresses will be given by Professor Dalia Ofer of Hebrew University and Dr. Tim Cole of University of Bristol. There will be a performance of the one man show REMNANTS by its creator Dr. Henry Greenspan, as well as a screening of "Diamonds in the Snow", a documentary about Hidden Children and a discussion with the director, a child survivor. Panels will discuss ghetto life, life and death inside the concentration camps, life outside the walls of the camps and ghettos, Children and the Holocaust, The experience of Jewish displaced persons and Jewish life in post-war Germany, the use of victim testimony as a means of telling their story, and the way in which victims have memorialized their own experiences.
The conference will be held on the campus of Youngstown State University in Youngstown, OH on April 2-4, 2006.
