AHRC-funded exhibition ‘Germany’s Confrontation with the Holocaust in a Global Context’ ready to launch
The AHRC-funded exhibition ‘Germany’s Confrontation with the Holocaust in a Global Context’ is now in production. All the panels are complete and are now at the printers. The exhibition will simultaneously launch on Holocaust Memorial Day (27 January) 2015 in the UK and South Africa and will then travel around both countries, reaching a wide audience of students and members of the public. There will be public events in all locations, including a drama performance by a young people’s theatre group in Leeds, where the exhibition will also coincide with our major international conference. The launch venues are:
- Leeds Town Hall and the Parkinson Court, University of Leeds (UK)
- National Holocaust Centre, Laxton (UK)
- Cape Town Holocaust Centre (South Africa)
The exhibition will also be displayed at universities, schools, and museums in the UK and internationally. Please contact us if you would like it to come to you.
The project is a partnership between Professor Stuart Taberner and his team at Leeds (Professor Paul Cooke, Dr Matthew Boswell, Dr Helen Finch, Dr Victoria Nesfield), the National Holocaust Centre (UK), the South African Holocaust and Genocide Foundation, Professor Bill Niven (Nottingham Trent), the University of the Free State (South Africa), and the Theatre Company Blah Blah Blah (Leeds).
