Professor Richard Bessel (University of York) will explore how scholars and archivists incorporate sources encompassing memoirs, architectures, testimonies, photographs and moving image footage into the writing of the Holocaust in particular, and genocides more broadly.

This seminar is also known as 'Historians and their Publics: Confronting Histories of Violence'. It forms part of the public program of the third Dr Jan Randa Conference in Holocaust and Genocide Studies, hosted by the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation, in partnership with the History Program at Monash University and the University of Warwick.
