Join the Kupferberg Holocaust Center at Queensborough Community College for a discussion about how institutions and scholars are finding new ways to preserve and document Holocaust memory. The event includes a screening of the new documentary film, Preserving the Holocaust (3Generations), which follows a group of young Polish conservators who are preserving artifacts from the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination and concentration camp. Afterwards, Jane Wells, the film’s director, will be in conversation with Hannah Wilson, Ph.D. candidate at the Department of History, Nottingham Trent University, about how artifacts convey memory.
