CHI Salon: Spain, the Second World War, and the Holocaust

Join editors Gina Herrmann and Sara J. Brenneis in a discussion on the new publication, Spain, the Second World War and the Holocaust: History and Representation (U Toronto Press, 2020). Herrmann and Brenneis brought together over 30 international experts around the topic of Spain's involvement in World War II, combining the vantage point of Jews who fled Nazi persecution through the Iberian Peninsula, Spaniards who were directly involved in the war and/or imprisoned in Nazi camps, and artists who have created representations of this historical period and its actors. The waves of people -- Jewish refugees and Spanish antifascists alike -- who moved across borders, through concentration camps and into exile presses us to consider what "home" meant during a moment of unparalleled global strife.
They will speak about this collection as the first volume to take this kind of interdisciplinary and cross-cultural view of the period, consider how the volume came together, and discuss some of the more extraordinary takeaways from the book.

Gina Herrmann is a Norman H Brown Faculty Fellow, Professor of Spanish, and Director of the Harold Schnitzer Family Program in Judaic Studies at the University of Oregon, Eugene. Sara Brenneis is Professor of Spanish and Department Chair at Amherst College.

This event is co-sponsored by the Departments of Spanish and European Studies at Amherst College. Pre-registration is required.
