Mit seinen wissenschaftlichen Veranstaltungen versucht das Wiener Wiesenthal Institut für Holocaust-Studien (VWI) die neuesten Ergebnisse im Bereich der Holocaust-, Genozid- und Rassismusforschung einem breiteren ebenso wie einem ausgewiesenen Fachpublikum regelmäßig näher zu bringen. Die unterschiedlichen Formate dieser über einen engen Wissenschaftsbegriff hinausweisenden Veranstaltungen, die von in einem kleinen Rahmen gehaltenen gehaltenen Vorträgen, den Simon Wiesenthal Lectures über für ein Fachpublikum interessante Workshops bis zu großen internationalen Tagungen, den Simon Wiesenthal Conferences reichen, spiegeln das breite Tätigkeitsfeld des Instituts wider.

 

Präsentationen von ausgewählten Neuerscheinungen zu den einschlägigen Themen des Instituts, Interventionen im öffentlichen Raum, die Filmreihe VWI Visuals und die Fachkolloquien der Fellows runden die Palette der Veranstaltungen des Instituts weiter ab.

VWI invites the Institute of Culture Studies and Theatre History

FredrikDrawing on a biographical perspective on the influence of a few important in- dividuals for the shaping of Austrian Post-War history and memory culture, the focus of the presentation will be on institutionalized forms of dealing with the Austrian past, foremost in the pe- riod 1960-1988.

Historical commissions and institutes, documentation centres and permanent historical exhibitions were founded or initialized by individuals whose mind set and worldview were formed in the inter-war era and during the Nazi period. These institutions contributed strongly to stabilizing and perpetuating a special Austrian history and memory culture. However, that history and memory culture was not without internal tensions and contradictions. The occasional clash between different understandings of the Austrian past may tentatively be approached as the clashing of “tectonic plates” undergirding Austrian history and memory culture.
