Dr. Birgit Hebel-Bauridl of the Department of American Studies, University of Regensberg, Germany will present a lecture on the dynamics of memory, space, and encounter at a former concentration camp in Bavaria. What is now the Flossenbürg Concentration Camp Memorial and Museum has been put to multiple uses since its liberation in 1945, initially as a camp for displaced persons immediately post-war, as a memorial site for different populations imprisoned there, and most recently as a venue for workshops geared to young migrants and refugees. Dr. Bauridl unpacks how practices of resistance to an oppressive past and efforts to construct a socially just present take shape in a complex and layered site of public memory.
