> Beyond camps and forced labour: current international
> research on survivors of Nazi persecution.
> Fourth international multidisciplinary conference, to be
> held at the Imperial War Museum, London, 4-6 January 2012
> This conference is planned as a follow-up to the three
> successful conferences, which took place at the Imperial War
> Museum in London in 2003, 2006 and 2009. It will continue to
> build on areas previously investigated, and also open up new
> fields of academic enquiry.
> 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.
> The organisers welcome proposals, which focus on topics and
> themes of the 'life after', ranging from the experience of
> liberation to the trans-generational impact of persecution,
> individual and collective memory and consciousness, and
> questions of theory and methodology. We particularly
> encourage colleagues from central, east and southeast Europe
> to apply.
