histoCON Community activities around International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Fewer and fewer eyewitnesses of the Holocaust are alive to tell their stories. At the same time, new formats of remembrance are continually emerging, driven by new forms of media usage and development, some of them being discussed controversially. histoCON wants to address this development in a community workshop and a talk with Holocaust survivor Alfred Garwood on International Holocaust Remembrance Day this Thursday.
