Event Description

The Holocaust: An Unfinished History

The Holocaust is much-discussed, much-memorialized and portrayed in fiction. But major parts of its history have still not been understood. Drawing on his new book “The Holocaust: An Unfinished History,” Dr. Dan Stone, Director of the Holocaust Research Institute at Royal Holloway, University of London, focuses on the need to understand the significance of Nazism's genocidal ideology; why the Holocaust is not synonymous with the history of the Nazi concentration camps; the shortcomings of the commonly heard concept of "industrial genocide"; and the fact that the genocide of the Jews required continent-wide collaboration.

This event will open with a performance of the first movement of Günter Raphael's Sonata for flute and piano, Op. 8 by UVic School of Music flute professor Suzanne Snizek and pianist Yoomi Kim.

Dan Stone is Professor of Modern History and Director of the Holocaust Research Institute at Royal Holloway, University of London. He is the author of over 80 scholarly articles and author or editor of 20 books, including: “Histories of the Holocaust” (OUP, 2010); “The Liberation of the Camps” (Yale, 2015) and, most recently, “Fate Unknown: Tracing the Missing after World War II and the Holocaust” (OUP, 2023).

A virtuoso flutist, Suzanne Snizek has performed extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Her ground breaking research on Music in WWII British internment has been published by Böhlau Verlag-Vienna, Routledge-New York, the Council of Europe, Berghann-New York, Armand Colin-Paris, as well as online at the World ORT website.
