Since the January 2000 Stockholm conference “The Holocaust – Education, Remembrance, and Research,” which was attended by high-level representatives from 46 countries, there has been much discussion of a “globalization” of memory of the Nazi Holocaust. This lecture uses memorials and museums the trace the origins and spread of public awareness of “the” Holocaust and its changing meanings from the 1940s to the new millennium.
