Different historical narratives and collective memories linked to the post-WWII constructions of national identity still divide Western and Central-Eastern Europe. The history of the Holocaust still waits for contextual approaches, particularly when we face abuses of Holocaust memory. In this presentation, Dr. Jolanta Ambrosewicz-Jacobs argues that a “politics of pride” – replacing the former “politics of shame” – is connected to intergenerational transmission of long-lasting denial of facts in Polish national histories.

Holocaust Center Associate Director Dr. Alexis Herr will offer a formal response.
