United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies SYMPOSIUM New Research and Resources on Children and the Holocaust FEBRUARY 26-27, 2013 Helena Rubinstein Auditorium United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Ten years after the first conference on the topic convened by the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, this symposium explores the evolution of the study of children and the Holocaust. These presentations draw upon new Museum resources to interrogate familiar subjects, such as hiding and rescue, as well as probe new areas of research, such as postwar identity, history and memory, and the challenges and opportunities presented by child survivor testimony itself. Susan Rubin Suleiman, C. Douglas Dillon Professor of the Civilization of France and Professor of Comparative Literature, Harvard University, will deliver the keynote address, "Orphans of the Shoah and Jewish Identity in Postwar France."
