#histoPOD Commemorating the Holocaust

Argentina

von: Annika Brockschmidt

In this episode we talk with an expert about Holocaust Remembrance in Argentina.

Inhalt

Argentina is a founding member and the only Latin American member of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, which was founded in 1998. Argentina is also the only Latin American country that has a museum dedicated to the history of the Holocaust. The country was neutral during the Second World War, but has a historical connection with the Holocaust, whose memory in Argentina is also linked to the memory of the time of the military dictatorship in the country.

Our interview guest in this episode is Jonathan Karszenbaum, who is the executive director of the Holocaust Museum in Buenos Aires. He was one of the directors of the renovation project of the new museum and its modern exhibition inaugurated in December 2019. He has led various educational projects on the Shoah and given courses and lectures. Between 2009 and 2015 he directed two associations of Holocaust survivors and families, Shoah Generations and Sherit Hapleita. He has a degree in political science from the University of Buenos Aires (2007) and teaches Jewish history at ORT High School. He is a Yad Vashem scholar of the programs for educators (2010) and Morei Morim (2012).
