Workshops & Tagungen

 

Die einzelnen Forschungsvorhaben und -projekte des Wiener Wiesenthal Instituts für Holocaust-Studien (VWI) bedürfen einer laufenden Diskussion und tiefgehenden wissenschaftlichen Erörterung und Feinadjustierung.

  

VWI-Workshops dienen so der Vertiefung und Diskussion von Themen, die gerade im Fokus der Tätigkeiten des Instituts stehen. Das Grundsatzpapier und die empfohlenen Forschungsschwerpunkte des Internationalen Wissenschaftlichen Beirats bzw. dessen Empfehlungen  dienen dabei als Richtschnur, wobei aber Themen, Ideen und Konzepte durchaus auch vom VWI selbst aufgegriffen bzw. formuliert und umgesetzt werden können. Häufig werden oder wurden auch externe Fachleute für die Konzeption eines Workshops herangezogen, deren akademische Institutionen dann auch als Partnerorganisationen bei der konkreten Veranstaltung dienen.  

  

Für die Vorbereitung der Workshops hat sich seit 2011 – dem Jahr des ersten VWI-Workshops – eine Mischung aus Beiträgen, die über einen Call for Papers an die Organisatorinnen und Organisatoren herangebracht werden, bzw. die Einladung von ausgewiesenen Fachleuten für einzelne Panels oder die Keynote als durchaus produktiv erwiesen.

 

Darüber hinaus beteiligt sich das VWI auch finanziell, inhaltlich und organisatorisch an diversen Konferenzen, deren Inhalte mit dem Institutsprofil korrelieren.

 

 

Workshop
Accessing Campscapes: Inclusive Strategies for Using European Conflicted Heritage
   

Mittwoch, 16. Oktober 2019, 09:15 - 19:30

Vienna Wiesenthal Institute, Research Lounge 1010 Vienna, Rabensteig 3, 3rd Floor

 

In most postwar European countries, former Nazi campscapes have become icons of antifascist resistance and the Holocaust, and they have played a consistent role in postwar European memory of totalitarianism and genocide. In Western European countries, former camps have been reused by postcolonial migrants and other refugee groups. In the Eastern European centre of the Holocaust and Stalinist terror, many former camps are still contested spaces where consecutive internments of prisoners by occupying powers and political regimes transformed the victims of one event into the persecutors of another. This entanglement of remembering with forgetting, along with the silencing of competing narratives, shows the strong connection between heritage, storytelling and the politics of identity, posing a serious challenge to museums, remembrance institutions, civil society organizations, social activists, critical academics and educators tasked with the development of new and alternative narratives to make such spaces ever more relevant.

The cultural, political and material dynamics of former camps in Europe was investigated within the framework of iC-ACCESS, drawing from interdisciplinary research perspectives in historical, heritage and memory studies, forensics, archaeology and material culture studies, and digital humanities. We have explored what has become, in the European context, a dominant set of issues: the dynamics affecting the staging and presentation of some Holocaust camps into heritage, and the forgetting of others; the acknowledgement and presentation of Stalinist campscapes in Eastern Europe; dissonant heritage and competing memories, and simmering ethnic/regional tensions from the past, exacerbated by the present EU crisis affecting the identity and future of the European integration project. iC-ACCESS has addressed the role of the campscapes as monuments of the ‘20th century of camps’ in an age of transnationalization, digitization, and migration.

At the conference, we will present the results of research carried out between 2016 and 2019 at key campscapes across Europe: Westerbork (The Netherlands), Treblinka (Poland), Falstad (Norway), Jasenovac/Donja Gradina (Croatia/Republika Srpska), Bergen-Belsen (Germany), the former Roma camp at Lety (Czech Republic), former uranium labour camps in the Jáchymov region (Czech Republic), the former Holocaust site at Maly Trostenets (Belarus) and the Civil War camp Castuera (Spain). The conference will spotlight the role of testimonies in increasing accessibility and visibility for visitors to such sites, explore new technologies of VR/AR reality to 3/4D mapping and connect competing memories on campscapes, and focus on contested political, narrative and material dynamics at and around campscapes.

This HERA-JPI project has been a collaboration between the University of Amsterdam, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology Trondheim, the Staffordshire University, the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, Freie Universität Berlin and the Institute for Bioengineering in Barcelona. The project was carried out in collaboration with associate partners: Bergen Belsen Memorial, Camp Westerbork Memorial Centre, the Museum of Struggle and Martyrdom in Treblinka, Falstad Memorial and Human Rights Centre, Jasenovac Memorial Museum, Postbellum, the Museum of Roma Culture, and the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies (VWI), and profited from the support of companies such as UCL Scanlab, Eodyne Systems, VU Spinlab, and Calibro.
