Daniel Mendelsohn – The 21st Annual Robert Salomon Morton Lecture

Description

The 21st Annual Robert Salomon Morton Lecture
featuring Daniel Mendelsohn

presented by the Northeastern Humanities Center and Northeastern’s Holocaust Awareness Committee as part of Holocaust Awareness Week
“Lost Between Memory and History: Writing the Holocaust for the Next Generation”
Daniel Mendelsohn, author of the best-selling book, The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million (2006), will explore the evolving meaning of the Holocaust as both a historical and literary event. Mendelsohn’s important lecture comes at a critical moment as this history passes to a new generation of writers and readers. Mendelsohn asks: Does the injunction to “never forget” put us at risk of “forgetting” individual stories as they are reshaped into the large manageable parables cultures need to live by.
