CFP: Beyond camps and forced labour: current international research on survivors of Nazi persecution

Fourth international multidisciplinary conference. Imperial War Museum, London, January 4-6, 2012.

"The aim is to bring together scholars from a variety of disciplines who are engaged in research on all groups of survivors of Nazi persecution. These will include - but are not limited to - Jews, Gypsies and Slavonic people, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, Soviet prisoners of war, political dissidents, members of underground movements, the disabled, the so-called 'racially impure', and forced labourers. For the purpose of the conference, a 'survivor' is defined as anyone who suffered any form of persecution by the Nazis or their allies as a result of the Nazis’ racial, political, ideological or ethnic policies from 1933 to 1945, and who survived the Second World War.
As previously, we welcome new research in the following areas:
• DPs in post-war Europe
• Reception and resettlement
• Survivors in central, east and southeast Europe
• Exiles, émigrés and refugees in the reconstruction process
• Legacy and impact
• Rescuers and liberators
• Child survivors
• Women survivors and gender issues
• Trials and justice
• Reparation and restitution
• Testimonies and record building
• Film and photography
• Memory and amnesia
• Trauma and intergenerational transmission
• Remembrance and memorials
• Museums and archives".
Submission deadline for proposals: February 28, 2011.
