An exhibition titled “Germany’s Confrontation with the Holocaust in a Global Context” will be on display through Oct. 16 (Friday) in the Great Hall of O’Shaughnessy Hall on the University of Notre Dame campus.
The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, concerns Germany in the years immediately following World War II and the Holocaust. The exhibition explores the manner in which the country has come to terms with its past, and suggests comparisons between German and other societies in the assimilation of their collective memories.
Sponsored by the Department of German and Russian Languages and Literatures, the exhibition is the centerpiece of “Remembrance: The Holocaust in a Global Context,” a series of lectures, films and gallery talks at Notre Dame in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
