On Wednesday, April 10, the Holocaust Living History Workshop series will feature Dirk Moses, a professor of modern history at the University of Sydney. Moses is senior editor of the Journal of Genocide Research and has written numerous books and anthologies, including the award-winning book “German Intellectuals and the Nazi Past.”

The suite of international conventions and declarations about genocide, human rights and refugees after WWII is known as the Human Rights Revolution. It is regarded widely as humanizing international affairs by implementing the lessons of the Holocaust. In an attempt to answer the common and controversial question—does the Holocaust reveal or conceal other genocides—Moses examines how persecuted people have invoked the Holocaust and made analogies with Jews to gain recognition as genocide victims. Moses is senior editor of the Journal of Genocide Research and has written numerous books and anthologies, including the award-winning book German Intellectuals and the Nazi Past.
