Gregory F. Schroeder, associate professor of history at St. John's University and the College of St. Benedict, will present "Austrian Memorials to the Victims of Nazism: Local Efforts to Remember and Warn" on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 3 p.m. in the Memorial Union Hidatsa room. The presentation is the third colloquium of North Dakota State University's Department of History, Philosophy and Religious Studies. The event is free and open to the public.
Schroeder will discuss memorials to victims of the Third Reich in three towns in Austria. His case studies offer various and interesting insights into memory work conducted at the local level and demonstrate how communities address the difficult legacy of Nazism. The presentation will discuss literature as an impulse to create memorials, aesthetic design and intentions, and educational tasks associated with memorials.
Schroeder earned his undergraduate degree in history and German at Duke University and completed his doctoral degree in European history at Indiana University.
