Natan Sznaider Thu, 6th July 2023, 8:00 pm Vanishing points of memory Lecture What distinguishes racism and anti-Semitism? Internationally, the relationship between colonial crimes and the Holocaust has long been debated. Are Jewish victims favored in memory over African victims? The debates surrounding the Humboldt Forum are now also forcing Germany to confront its colonial past. Hannah Arendt and Edward Said were not the only ones who asked such questions earlier. In them, Natan Sznaider finds ideas and arguments to advance today’s discussion. Will it ultimately be possible to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and colonialism without relativizing history? Sznaider looks at the relationship of the Holocaust to the crimes of colonialism. Natan Sznaider, born in Mannheim in 1954, has taught as a professor of sociology at the Tel Aviv Academic University since 1994.
