The Legion of the Lost: New Discoveries on the Holocaust

19 November, 2020, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This is an online event.

In this online event, a first in a series, participants will discover the history of a little-known archive, the International Tracing Service, created to find missing people after the Holocaust. This online taster event will feature a preview of work by the leading Holocaust historian, Professor Dan Stone, as he uncovers new aspects of Holocaust history and its legacies and will also highlight family history research resources. The event will also include a preview of a traveling exhibition on tracing missing people after the Holocaust, which will be shown at the Linen Hall Library in 2021. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the meaning of confronting difficult histories on the personal level, with special consideration of the themes of war, migration, rupture, survival and victimhood. This event will be followed by a workshop and lecture at the Linen Hall Library in Belfast in 2021, as pandemic conditions permit.
