Refugees and citizens in East-Central Europe in the 20th century

Lidia Zessin-Jurek at the Conference on the Holocaust and Human Rights (Mechelen, Belgium)

Museum and Research Centre Kazerne Dossin (Mechelen/Belgium) invited Lidia Zessin-Jurek to talk on the political instrumentalisation of Holocaust memory in Europe at the “Holocaust and Human Rights” Conference (21-22 February 2024). Lidia drew a link between the reflection on this topical issue and how coming to terms with genocide does (or does not) affect the reception of refugees in Western and Eastern Europe.
