The Role of Auschwitz in Holocaust Narratives – May 5, 2025, Toronto

As we commemorate the 80th anniversary of the liberation of Europe from Nazi tyranny, the Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program is proud to host an academic conference focusing on the role of Auschwitz in Holocaust narratives.

The Call for Papers can be downloaded here.

To support scholarly research on the conference topic, the Auschwitz Collection page includes access to an overview of some of the memoirs program’s publications that reference survivor experiences in Auschwitz-Birkenau. Copies (digital or print) of these memoirs may ordered in advance of submitting a proposal.

Should you require additional information about the application process or wish to consult about accessing the memoir archives, contact Dr. Carson Phillips, manager of academic initiatives. We look forward to receiving your submissions.

Please note that this page will be updated with conference details as they become available.
