Description: As a continuation of this year’s Annual Wolfe Lecture, ‘The Holocaust in Hungary 75 Years Later: Experience, Memory, Analysis’, we are inviting graduate students to a closed, lunch time discussion with one of our visiting speakers.

Ferenc Lazcó, author of Hungarian Jews in the Age of Genocide: An Intellectual History, 1929-1948 (2016), joins us from Maastricht University. His research interests include political and intellectual history, modern and contemporary European history with a special focus on Central and Eastern Europe in the twentieth century, Jewish history and the history of the Holocaust, and questions of history and memory. Join us for an informal discussion on the implications of Hungary’s current political situation for scholars of the Holocaust, Jewish history, Gender Studies, and genocide.

This event is sponsored by the Chancellor Rose and Ray Wolfe Chair in Holocaust Studies, the Anne Tanenbaum Centre for Jewish Studies, JIGES/DAAD, the Hungarian Studies Program at CERES at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, and the Department of History.

Please note, closer to the event a short reading will be sent to the attendees.
