The Fritz Bauer Institut in Frankfurt and the Imre Kertész Kolleg Jena joined forces to explore the confrontational nature of the Cold War and discuss how debating on the Holocaust became a discursive and ideological weapon in the arsenals of both the West and the Eastern Bloc. The conference examined to what extent the Cold War affected representations of the Shoah in historiography, legal investigations and trials as well as the arts and will ask how this has determined political discourse until today.
The conference took place from May 26 to 28, 2021 and was held entirely online.
We thank all participants for their contributions!
