With Victoria Barnett, Director of the Holocaust Memorial Museum Programs on Ethics, Religion, and the Holocaust Drawing on recent research about the history of Muslim communities in Europe and North Africa under Nazi rule, this paper will explore how new historical findings can serve as a “destabilizing” methodology, challenging previous assumptions and yielding new avenues for research—in this case, with respect to the dynamics that affected religious minorities and their interrelationships with other communities. The insights from this research have broader implications for understanding other intersections of religion and violence. *Reading the paper in advance is required for attendance.
