From December 14-15, Yahad-In Unum, in partnership with the European Observatory of Memories held a symposium on “The Soviet Child, the War and the Holocaust” at the University of Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain.
The symposium treated the subject through the lens of different disciplines: history, anthropology, psychoanalysis, literature, neuroscience. It stimulated reflection and consciousness-raising of the particularities of violence towards children and the place they occupy within a genocidal and criminal process as well as a war of extermination.
Overall, the seminar received 200 participants including researchers, students and professors from the University of Barcelona. The symposium featured presentations from 29 European and American researchers and professors.
