histoCON Community Workshop: Reshaping Remembrance


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.

The Community Workshop takes place on 27 January 2022 from 2 – 3.30 pm CET and is open for anyone interested in learning more about Holocaust Education and innovative ways to teach about the Holocaust. In the first part of the workshop, four practitioners will present their remembrance projects. In the second part, the participants will work together in groups, considering what remembrance might look like in the future.

Our guests are:

After graduating from Kings College London with a BA in War Studies, his cameras have taken him all over the world, with images printed in The Times, Tatler, GQ, and Gentleman’s Journal, amongst others. Since 2015 Sam has worked with March of the Living to document the return of holocaust survivors to Poland and Germany and continue to tell their stories.
