Tal Golan: The Politics of Memory

The Holocaust Living History Workshop presents:

Tal Golan:  The Politics of Memory

Tal Golan is a professor of history and son of a Holocaust survivor from Poland.  Yuzhek Goldberg (later Joseph Golan) grew up in the Polish town of Nowe Miastro and spent time in the Warsaw ghetto before going into hiding and later joining the partisans.  At war’s end, he immigrated to Palestine.  Goldberg was one of many Holocaust survivors who kept silent about their ordeal until late in life when he decided to commit his memories to paper.  In this talk, Tal Golan reflects on the politics of memory and the struggle common to many survivors to build a new, Israeli identity.
