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.

!!!CANCELLED!!! David Lebovitch-Dahl: Antisemitism, Nationalism and the Austrian Province of the Society of Jesus, 1918-1939, in a Comparative Perspective !!!CANCELLED!!!
   

Mittwoch, 22. Januar 2014, 15:00 - 16:30

Institut für Historische Theologie, Kirchengeschichte, Universität Wien, Schenkenstraße 8-10, 1010 Wien, Seminarraum 1

 

VWI goes to the Department of Church History, University of Vienna

 

The presentation addresses the problem of the attitudes of the Austrian Jesuits to antisemitism and nationalism in the Interwar Period. This question is important because of the significance of Catholicism for Austrian politics and because of the prominent role played by Austrians in the Holocaust.

 

The study is part of a broader ongoing project on the variations in the positions towards nationalism and racism within the Jesuit Order in Europe. It is the assumption of the research that the Jesuits' postures were influenced both by supra-national doctrinal concerns and by more local pastoral concerns and that the analysis of differences, tensions and debates within the Order regarding nationalism and antisemitism might increase our understanding of factors determining the support of or resistance to antisemitism within Catholic institutions. In addition, by studying the developments in the positions of the Jesuits in the interwar period, the project addresses the question of the continuity of antisemitism in the period from the late nineteenth century to World War II.

 

The presentation will analyze attitudes to Jews, "the Jewish question" and antisemitism of Jesuits in Italy, Germany, England and Austria, pointing at differences in their positions, and attempting to identify some of the factors that might have determined such differences. To conclude, it will be discussed what might have been specific in the approaches of the Austrian Jesuits, and what a comparative study of the transnational Society of Jesus might add to the existing scholarly literature on the Roman Catholic Church and antisemitism.
