“How will the Shoah be remembered in 2045 or 2100?” This question invites reflection on the legacy of this historical event in years to come, when the voices of the survivors will no longer be present to shed light on this atrocity. As of 2023, education on the Holocaust is inadequate, and with the passage of time, knowledge of the subject is diminishing.
Despite the fact that the Shoah is perhaps the most barbaric historic event documented, there are still those who deny or minimise its significance. Some historical revisionists exploit sophisticated technology and social media to disseminate their distorted perspectives, targeting not only antisemites and Holocaust deniers, but also those lacking proper education on the subject, in an attempt to shape public opinion.
How will the Shoah be remembered? Will the truth endure, or will it be reshaped by antisemitism? This seminar will examine this important subject matter.
