Event details

Part of the Parkes Institute series 2021/22. All welcome.

Join the Parkes Institute for the UK premiere of the documentary film #uploading_holocaust and a round table discussion about memory, dark tourism and art in the digital age.

#uploading_holocaust, directed by Udi Nir and Sagi Bornstein, is composed of video clips and YouTube footage filmed by Israeli youth during their educational 'Journey to Poland’. It offers a unique point of view of a new generation, while revealing a moving and troubling image of the way collective memory is formed in the age of social media. The movie will be made free to stream between April 8-15, and a roundtable event featuring the film's director as well as experts in Holocaust studies and of memory in the digital age, will be held on April 13th.
