The Lithuanian Holocaust and Why It Is So Controversial
This talk outlines the history and major chapters of the Lithuanian Holocaust and goes on to question the uniqueness of the Baltics (and western Ukraine) vis-à-vis the outbreak of violence before arrival of the first Nazi German forces in 1941. The talk will also look at the post-Soviet rise of Double Genocide and Holocaust Obfuscation, the 21st century heirs to classic Holocaust Denial.

Dovid Katz, a Vilnius-based Yiddish and Holocaust scholar, has taught at Oxford, Yale and Vilnius universities. He edits the web journal Defending History and is at work on  a new Yiddish Cultural Dictionary.

This event forms part of the Mervyn Smith Memorial Lecture Series
