Please join the Harriman Institute for a discussion on “The Corrosive Effect of Genocide Denial in Post Genocide Societies.” Moderated by Tanya Domi.
The scope of the discussion will address the following: “Genocide denial not only abuses history, including contemporary history, but it also insults the survivors and extends the original crimes. Denial is the final act that never ends for the survivors. This discussion seeks to dive into contemporary genocide denial in the Balkans and beyond in discussion will also examine some of the parallels of contemporary genocide denial and its parallels to Holocaust distortion that is sweeping Europe and beyond.
