Featured Past Conference
New Perspectives on Kristallnacht
November 5-7, 2018
The international conference “New Perspectives on Kristallnacht: After 80 Years, the Nazi Pogrom in Global Comparison” convened 80 years after the violent pogrom of 1938 against the Jews in Nazi Germany with the aim of gathering the most recent scholarship on the event itself. Scholars from across the United States, Germany, Israel and the United Kingdom gathered at the conference representing a wide variety of disciplines, including history, political science, Jewish studies, French and literature. In their talks, they discussed reactions to the pogrom by victims and witnesses inside Nazi Germany as well as foreign journalists, diplomats, Jewish organizations and Jewish print media. Presenters also analyzed postwar narratives and global comparisons.
