About this item

This Conference Volume contains new and original research by genocide and holocaust scholars and commemorates a series of significant anniversaries, as well: 100 years since the beginning of the Armenian Genocide; 80 years since the Barmen Declaration; 75 years since the beginning of World War II; 70 years since the uprising at Auschwitz. Other topics under discussion include: Holocaust Education for Future Generations, Personal Experiences, as well as New Forms of antisemitism. Founded by Franklin H. Littell and Hubert G. Locke in 1970, The Annual Scholars' Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches provides an invaluable forum for scholars to report the latest findings in Holocaust research, ensuring the lessons of the Holocaust remain relevant for today's world. As the first Conference bringing together Christian and Jewish scholars to examine the lessons of the Holocaust and its message for contemporary society forty-four years ago, the ASC is the oldest continuing conference of its kind in North America and remains the only one to include discussions of the role and responsibilities of the Churches, the Universities, the large Corporations and the Professions (medicine, law and media). The continuing goal of the ASC is to aspire to the continuum of respecting the past, with a realistic involvement of the present, in order that we preserve a future that retains the dignity and integrity of every human person.
