Authentic Sites and Holocaust Remembrance - International Conference

Cipők Keret F

What are the authentic locations of the Holocaust in Hungary? How do we preserve them and how do they contribute to remembrance? How do we commemorate where locations have remained unmarked? These and similar exciting questions will be answered by Hungarian and foreign experts at an international conference organized by the Holocaust Memorial Center on 31 August and 1 September 2020.   

By the conference titled “Authentic Sites and Holocaust Remembrance”, the Holocaust Memorial Center contributes to the implementation of an international project entitled “Holocaust, European Values and Local History” supported by the IHRA and the Visegrad Fund.
