Although Holocaust Studies is a thriving research area, boasting many important recent publications and projects, a truly broad, interdisciplinary perspective is still felt to be lacking. Hence, this conference is meant as an opportunity to look together at the theme of the Shoah in as diverse and wide a context as possible.
