Digital Holocaust Memory

Led by Victoria Grace Walden at the University of Sussex, Digital Holocaust Memory explores the opportunities and challenges of preserving the history of the Holocaust in a technological age. The site begins by noting that we are transitioning "from an era dominated by face-to-face survivor testimony," to "an age characterised by mediated memory." To ensure that accurate accounts of the Holocaust are preserved, it is necessary to wrestle with complicated questions surrounding popular media. The project seeks to accomplish this through three primary objectives. First, by mapping "the digital Holocaust memoryscape." Second, by posing hard questions surrounding "the 'newness' of digital Holocaust memory," compared to other traditional historical mediums. And third, by welcoming diverse professional perspectives to engage in the work and advance the conversation. The project brings together Holocaust educators, curators, archivists, and media practitioners who share knowledge via blog posts, interactive events, and other useful resources. From the page linked above, users can join Online Discussions, catch up with News from the project, access the crowdsourced Holocaust Digital Memory Reading List, and view Public and Academic Publications.
