In our histoPOD podcast we speak to international experts to learn how the Holocaust is remembered in different countries.
Argentina is a founding member and the only Latin American member of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), which was founded in 1998. Argentina is also the only Latin American country that has a museum dedicated to the history of the Holocaust. The country was neutral during the Second World War, but has a historical connection with the Holocaust, whose memory in Argentina is also linked to the memory of the time of the military dictatorship in the country. Our interview guest in this episode is Jonathan Karszenbaum, who is the executive director of the Holocaust Museum in Buenos Aires.
