Open Call: Archives, Power, and Truth Telling

Catholic Archives and Holocaust Memory

USHMM, Yad Vashem, and Boston College are pleased to announce a virtual workshop on Archives, Power, and Truth Telling: Catholic Archives and Holocaust Memory. Papers are invited that present new, previously unpublished, and in-process archival research on the Catholic Church and the Holocaust, as well as theoretical and conceptual papers on the possibilities and limitations of archival research for scholarship, truth-telling, and memory. This workshop will address the roles of the institutional and local Church and of individual Catholic actors, and the role of archival research in scholarship and the potential contribution of these findings to Jewish-Christian Relations.
