Research Workshop

The Holocaust in Greece: Genocide and its Aftermath

21 November 2014 Thessaloniki, Greece

An international workshop of the Journal of Genocide Research and the International Hellenic University

Call for Papers

The editors of the Journal of Genocide Research (journal of the International Network of Genocide Scholars) and the School of Humanities of the International Hellenic University invite expressions of interest for participation in a one-day research workshop on the history of the Holocaust in Greece. The focus will be the events of the Nazi occupation, including deportations, and resistance, as well as their aftermath. The workshop will take place in Thessaloniki, Greece, a city of great symbolic importance to Sephardic Jewry. The workshop language is English.

Holocaust research remains relatively understudied and marginal both within Holocaust literature and the Greek academic and public spheres. With significant delay, it is currently being incorporated in the Greek national historiography. Issues of special interest to the organizers are: property confiscation; local dimensions of the Nazi occupation such as Jewish community responses and resistance; the Greek administration’s involvement in implementing Nazi policies; the Holocaust in Eastern Macedonia and Thrace and the Dodecanese (areas outside the administrative boundaries of the Greek state at the time); Greece in the context of the continent- wide “Final Solution”; antisemitism; rescue networks; camp and DP camp experiences of Greek Jews; Sonderkommando; camp returnees and restoration of the communities; the Jewish community politics of memorialization; and the public sphere and the Holocaust in Greece.

The workshop organisers invite original (i.e. not previously published), English- language contributions dealing with these or other aspects of the Holocaust in Greece. Prospective presenters are invited to submit a paper title, 400-500-word abstract (detailing argument, innovation and sources), CV, AV equipment requirements (DVD, computer, projector, etc.) and contact details by 1 June 2014 via email to Prof. A. Dirk Moses, Senior Editor of the Journal of Genocide Research: dirk.moses at sydney.edu.au. Applicants will be notified of the outcome by 1 July 2014
