The Roman Catholic Church and the Holocaust: New Studies, New Sources, New Questions
FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2–4 P.M.
Helena Rubinstein Auditorium
This workshop will identify new and emerging areas of research in some of the most important topics related to Church history and the Holocaust. Drawing on the Museum’s unique archival holdings from the Vatican, participants will examine the relationship between the Holy See and Zionism, European clerico-fascism and its importation to North America, Vatican diplomacy, and the concept of Brotherhood as transformational in post-Holocaust Christian-Jewish relations.
