"My Father, The Wehrmacht, and "Ordinary" Antisemitism," presented by Dr. Bjorn Krondorfer, Regent's Professor and Director of the Martin-Spring Institute at Northern Arizona University.
Dr. Bjorn Krondorfer will explore the concept of “ordinary antisemitism” through a
personal story about the effects of the Holocaust and war memories in German society after 1945, especially as they are passed on generationally. Dr. Krondorfer’s father was drafted into the army at age 17 and was stationed near a Jewish slave labor camp in Poland. The talk focuses on the value of engagement through dialogue between
communities affected by historical trauma.
The talk is free and open to the public on Zoom.
