9781350022430: Holocaust Remembrance between the National and the Transnational: The Stockholm International Forum and the First Decade of the International Task Force

Holocaust Remembrance Between the National and the Transnational provides a key study of the remembrance of the Jewish Catastrophe and the Nazi-era past in the world arena. It uses a range of primary documentation from the restitution conferences, speeches and presentations made at the Stockholm International Forum of 2000 (Sif 2000), a global event and an attempt to mark a defining moment in the inter-cultural construction of the political and institutional memory of the Holocaust in the Usa, Europe and Israel. Containing oral history interviews with delegates to the conference and contemporary press reports, this book explores the inter-relationships between global and national Holocaust remembrances.

The causes, consequences and 'cosmopolitan' intellectual context for understanding the Sif 2000 are discussed in great detail. Larissa Allwork examines this seminal moment in efforts to globally promote the important, if ever controversial, topics of Holocaust remembrance, worldwide Genocide prevention and the commemoration of the Nazi past. Providing a balanced assessment of the Stockholm Project, this book is an important study for those interested in the remembrance of the Holocaust and the Third Reich, as well as the recent global direction in memory studies.

About the Author:

Larissa Allwork is Teaching Fellow in Twentieth Century European History at the University of Leicester, UK.

Review:

Meticulous research, detailed analysis, lucid writing, captivating narration-those descriptions characterize Larissa Allwork's impressive study of recent international initiatives to preserve memory of the Holocaust, expand education about that disaster, and promote awareness of the Shoah's implications for the world's future. Deftly evaluating how those efforts have tried to navigate what she calls "the ebb and flow of the space, place, and time of memory, +? Allwork herself preserves memory of important moments in post-Holocaust history, reminding her readers not only that much has been accomplished but also that much remains to be done if Holocaust remembrance is to continue responsibly and effectively.
John K. Roth, Edward J. Sexton Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College, USA

Larissa Allwork's fascinating, detailed study explores the pathways of Holocaust memory with precision and critical intelligence. Through oral interviews with key players, and the use of published and unpublished material, the book delineates the ways in which 'official' memory has developed since the Stockholm Forum in the year 2000, and how these developments have been received by governments, NGOs and academics across Europe and North America. In doing so, Allwork reveals Holocaust memory to be a profoundly contested arena, and perhaps one of the most important barometers of political culture today.
Dan Stone, Professor of History, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

This book provides an intensive contextualisation of the establishment of the ITF based on a thorough analysis of an impressive number of unpublished sources and interviews with key players. Allwork demonstrates how Holocaust memory became more and more institutionalized in Western as well as Eastern European countries. Although this process was not free of conflicts, this book demonstrates that the establishment of public institutions such as the Swedish Living History Forum and their collaboration with NGOs have a major impact on European and international Holocaust research, education and remembrance - keeping Holocaust history on the agenda.
Tanja Schult, expert in Holocaust memory, Stockholm University, Sweden
