Panel Discussion

The Munk School of Global Affairs presents

Community Safety, Insecurity, and Radicalization: Holocaust Memory and Education in the 21st Century

This panel discussion focuses on issues of antisemitism and community safety in Europe. Concern over Jewish community safety continues to be prominent, including apprehension over Holocaust denial and trivialization. This session focuses on responses that seek to increase community security and address radicalization: in France, a prefect was appointed to protect religious and cultural sites; the Director of the Mémorial de la Shoah has identified Holocaust and genocide education as a means to combat antisemitism; and a European Commission Colloquium has included Holocaust education and criminalizing Holocaust denial as hate speech among its proposals to address hate crime and promote inclusivity. Building on these responses, this discussion will include invited panelists, chaired by HEW Scholar-in- Residence Prof. Ron Levi, who will explore the meaning of community safety in the current context, the role of Holocaust memory and education in addressing radicalization, and how the European Jewish experience opens thinking into the role of memory in promoting community safety.

Co-presented by the Consulate General of France.
Generously co-sponsored by Naomi Rifkind Mansell & David Mansell in honour of Joyce Rifkind.
The HEW Scholar-in-Residence is sponsored by the Cohen Family Charitable Trust.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is required. For further information, please contact Daria Dumbadze
