2005 Seminar:  Holocaust and Genocide: the Jewish and Chinese Experiences

To mark the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II, to promote the studies of the Holocaust and Nanjing Massacre, and to draw parallel lessens between the two atrocities, the Center for Jewish Studies at Nanjing University and the London Jewish Cultural Centre jointly held an International Seminar on Holocaust and Genocide in WWII: Jewish and Chinese Experiences from August 7-12, 2005, in Nanjing, China. 

The project included participants from Yad Vashem (Israel), the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Anne Frank House (Amsterdam) and the Centre de Documentation Juive Contemporaine CDJC (France). The seminar shared mutual knowledge through a series of lectures, seminars and museum tours. As Chinese scholars learned about  the Holocaust and how to teach it, they will shared their expertise on the Nanjing massacre with their visitors. Parallels were drawn between the two atrocities. Comparative lectures included: 
 

  • Rescue and Resistance during the Holocaust and Rescue Efforts during the Nanjing Massacre 
  • Massacre and Remembrance and The Holocaust and memory 
  • Nanjing and Japanese Deniers and Holocaust Denial; and 
  • Teaching the Holocaust and Teaching the Nanjing Massacre in Schools.
