You are warmly invited to attend the launch of Dr Avril Alba’s book: The Holocaust Memorial Museum: Sacred Secular Space.
The book explores the sacred underpinnings of these increasingly influential institutions. Through the study of three major Holocaust Memorial Museums in the United States, Israel and Australia, Dr Alba demonstrates how radically different interpretations of Holocaust memory have produced diverse and sometimes conflicting conclusions.
The book will be launched by: Barbara Kirschenblatt-Gimblett, University Professor Emerita and Professor Emerita of Performance Studies at New York University and
Chief Curator of the Core Exhibition at POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews.
RSVP essential for catering. Please contact us by Thursday 29 October 2015.
