On March 19, 1944, the Nazis marched into and occupied Hungary, precipitating one of the most intense periods of genocidal destruction of the Holocaust. By the time the deportations of Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz and other locations had been brought to an end four months later, no fewer than 500,000 Jews had been murdered.
This conference, taking place to mark the 70th anniversary of the Nazi invasion, seeks to bring together individuals from a wide variety of disciplines to explore key issues and recent research relating to the Holocaust in Hungary, as well as to contribute to ongoing discussions on this event.
Paper proposals might address, but are not limited to, the following topics:
Please submit an abstract of no more than 150 words, and a short biographical statement, to Dr. Paul Bartrop at firstname.lastname@example.org (tel. 239-590-7239) by November 30, 2013
The conference will be held at the picturesque campus of Florida Gulf Coast University, Fort Myers, between March 17-18, 2014.
It is anticipated that a volume of selected essays from this conference will be published at a later time.
