November 9, 1938: Emotions and Emotional Politics Then and Now, and In-between

  • Starts: 7:00 pm on Monday, October 15, 2018
Part of the Fall 2018 Elie Wiesel Memorial Lectures: "Kristallnacht 1938: What happened? What have we learned?" The talk explores first, the emotional politics of the first state-orchestrated pogrom in Nazi Germany, and, second, the emotions it raised among Jewish and non-Jewish Germans. It then goes on to investigate the memory culture that emerged after 1945, and it concludes by putting Elie Wiesel’s 1989 warning to the test: has the memory of 1938 faded after the German reunification? And what kind of emotions (and emotional politics) have been involved in the process?
