Study Delegation to Poland and Bosnia:
INoGS, the University of East Anglia and the Master of Arts of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Kean University (HGS) is convening a study delegation to multinational sites of former genocide (lieux de mémoire). It will include visits to Warsaw and Jedwabne in Poland, and Sarajevo and Srebrenica in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The mission will start in Berlin and end in London.
The delegation will break new ground by exploring the local origins and memory of genocide in comparative perspective. It will first visit Berlin to establish the Holocaust’s historical context. It will then travel to Poland (Warsaw and Jedwabne) and Bosnia-Herzegovina (Sarajevo and Srebrenica). It will complete its mission in London to explore the human rights response today with its academic partners. A significant portion of this mission is devoted to meeting in seminars with local leaders who are seeking to negotiate their post-genocide worlds.
