Traumatic Past, Creative Responses: Reflections on the Holocaust as a Challenge for Today

Björn Krondorfer lectured at Brandeis on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 to an audience of coexistence students and members of the campus's Arab-Jewish and German-Jewish dialogue groups. Raised in Germany, he illustrated the effects of the legacy of the Holocaust on the children and grandchildren of the generation of perpetrators by sharing stories from his own family. Björn Krondorfer is an associate professor of religious studies at St. Mary's College of Maryland.
