Plundered Cultures, Stolen Heritage - A Conference on the Targeting of Culture during Mass Atrocities

November 6-7, 2013

The very existence of national groups—their history, their memory and their future—rests on their members right to life, but scholars sometimes pay too little attention to assaults on the cultural identities of such groups which often precede physical attacks.

“Plundered Cultures, Stolen Heritage”— Concordia University’s contribution to Canada’s year of Holocaust Remembrance leadership— began the task of filling that gap and integrating our knowledge. Leading experts on the experiences of cultural destruction and mass atrocities suffered by the First Nations, Armenian and Jewish peoples assembled to discuss the motives of the perpetrators of these assaults, their impact, and the significance these attacks pose for restitution and reconciliation today.

Visit "Plundered Cultures, Stolen Heritage" to see the program and watch the keynote speech and panel discussions of the conference.
