Event details

To help mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2018 we will be holding a one-day event on Sunday 28 January 2018 consisting of a series of brief talks by experts from within the Parkes Institute for Jewish/non-Jewish Relations on the exciting topic of ‘Jewish Spaces – before, during and after the Holocaust’ with plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.

Drawing on the very latest research from the Parkes Institute these talks will cover a diverse range of perspectives on the topic of ‘Jewish Spaces’ relating these pieces of research to the impact the Holocaust has had on these ideas. They will cover ways that particular spaces are claimed or contested and the significance this has for wider perspectives on the field of Jewish/non-Jewish relations. The ‘spaces’ being considered will range near and far across the world and history itself. The day itself will open up exciting new avenues of knowledge and introduce new ways that we can explore the relationship between Jews and non-Jews.
