Speaker: Gilly Carr (University of Cambridge)

Nearly 80 years since the end of WWII, Holocaust sites across Europe face threats and challenges of all kinds, ranging from decay, natural disasters and collapse on the one hand, to extreme political attacks, arson, and vandalism on the other. Some sites have long since been reused for other purposes, and others were demolished immediately after the war.

CHRC Partner, Gilly Carr, is now leading an international five-year project on behalf of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance in order to write guidelines for best practice in safeguarding such sites across Europe. In this presentation, she introduces us to the challenges, methods and aspirations of the project.
