Exhibition “The Shoah in Europe”

22 june to15 september 2013

 Inauguration, Sathurday 22 june at 12pm


The exhibition "The Shoah in Europe" (The Holocaust in Europe), produced by the Shoah Memorial in Paris, can be seen in the MUME. The exhibition transmits the universal character of human rights and the conviction that no people or social group can be the victim of intolerance, discrimination, xenophobia and other forms of social hate.

This exhibition offers an overall vision of the Shoah in Europe since the emergence and growth of Nazism until the Nuremberg Trials through the different stages of the persecution of the Jews. It also provides an overall vision of the political and military reactions of the states and nations to this tragedy. It includes 26 information panels on the Holocaust in Europe, the rise of the Nazis, the persecution and assassination of people and the inhuman conditions of the victims. It has been organised by the Shoah Memorial and curated by Georges Bensoussan.

Complementing the exhibition, and bearing in mind that 2013 is the centenary of Joaquim Amat-Piniella’s birth, Marta Marín-Dòmine, translator of K.L. Reich into English, expert in concentration camp literature and professor at Wilfrid Laurier University (Canada), will deliver the lecture “K.L. Reich and the construction of the nazi camps collective memory: Notes for a debate”. The event will take place on 22 June at 11 am.

Dr. Marta Marín-Dòmine is Assistant Professor in the Department of Languages and Literature at Wilfrid Laurier University (Toronto). She is also Director of the Centre for Memory and Testimony Studies at the same university. She is author, among other works, of the books Traduir el desig (2004) and The Camp: Narratives of Internment and Exclusion (2007).
