Conference: Exploring the micro history of the holocaust, December 5-7, 2012, Paris
Over the past years, numerous surveys adopting a micro perspective applied to different terrains of investigation have enhanced our understanding of the holocaust. Focusing on family trajectories, deportation convoys, the histories of a ghetto, a camp, a city or a region, these studies aim to provide a local contribution to the national and European edifice of the history of the holocaust. The purpose of this international conference is to engage and compare the methods deployed in these studies, to investigate the specificity of the scale of observation thus adopted and to assess how the choice of a micro scale contributes to our macro comprehension of the history of the holocaust.
Locations of the conference: Wednesday, December 5: Ecole Normale Supérieure (rue d'Ulm); Thursday, December 6: Shoah Memorial (17 rue Geoffroy l'Asnier); Friday, December 7: Archives Nationales (Pierrefitte sur Seine).
