Mit seinen wissenschaftlichen Veranstaltungen versucht das Wiener Wiesenthal Institut für Holocaust-Studien (VWI) die neuesten Ergebnisse im Bereich der Holocaust-, Genozid- und Rassismusforschung einem breiteren ebenso wie einem ausgewiesenen Fachpublikum regelmäßig näher zu bringen. Die unterschiedlichen Formate dieser über einen engen Wissenschaftsbegriff hinausweisenden Veranstaltungen, die von in einem kleinen Rahmen gehaltenen gehaltenen Vorträgen, den Simon Wiesenthal Lectures über für ein Fachpublikum interessante Workshops bis zu großen internationalen Tagungen, den Simon Wiesenthal Conferences reichen, spiegeln das breite Tätigkeitsfeld des Instituts wider.

 

Präsentationen von ausgewählten Neuerscheinungen zu den einschlägigen Themen des Instituts, Interventionen im öffentlichen Raum, die Filmreihe VWI Visuals und die Fachkolloquien der Fellows runden die Palette der Veranstaltungen des Instituts weiter ab.

predmet unor2015 cramseyUsually, the creation of the State of Israel is cast as a story that begins with Herzl and is brought to fulfilment by the Holocaust. My book project, Uncertain Citizenship: Jewish Belonging and the “Ethnic Revolution” in Poland and Czechoslovakia, 1917-1947, considers the resolution of questions concerning Jewish political belonging and citizenship in Europe as the contingent result of transnational debates, diplomatic manoeuvrings, demographic pressures and policies on multiple levels across three decades.  In sum, by exploring conversations spanning this incisive thirty-year period, I show how the process by which East Central Europeans ‘solved’ questions of Jewish citizenship offers a synecdoche for the history of the unprecedented nationalisation of space in the region more generally.  Arguably, the overall disentangling of populations in post-Second World War East Central Europe demanded the simultaneous embrace of a Jewish homeland in Palestine as a territorial nationalist project.
