The central interest of the School is focused on opening up the discussion about the memorialisation of the Holocaust experience in Macedonia, and in particular focusing for the first time on Roma people as victims of genocidal violence, by taking the Holocaust as an important factor in the formation of Macedonia’s historic and socio-cultural past. The presence of the Jewish narrative in Macedonia will be compared to the scarce but important data on Roma people among other minority groups - victims of the Holocaust (homosexuals, disabled people, etc.). By promoting the memorialisation of Jewish and Roma experiences in a comparative perspective from the Macedonian context and their “strategies of survival”, in this Summer School we take as a starting point an attempt to further thematise and raise awareness of the systemic violence of the Holocaust through inter-disciplinary academic discussion.
