The Simon Wiesenthal Conference 2013 will be held on the theme “Collaboration in Eastern Europe during World War II and the Holocaust,” December 5-7, 2013, Vienna, Austria.
Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies (VWI)
This three-day conference will bring together scholars from all disciplines working on complicity and collaboration in a number of European countries to share their research with each other and the public. The conference will consist of two and a half days of presentations and r oundtable discussions open to the public, and one half day of workshop sessions.
The conference seeks to highlight new research on the complexity and dynamics of complicity and collaboration in such areas as mass killing and other atrocities; forced and slave labor; everyday life on the front and under occupation; plunder, robbery, and expropriation; the radicalization of local politics during Nazi occupation; and understudied victims.
