On Cambodia’s National Day of Remembrance, Classrooms Without Borders welcomes professor Karen Frostig. Frostig will discuss the trauma of memory, and the history of memorial culture, following genocide in three cities Cambodia, Vienna and Riga. Slide presentations will compare and contrast how these three countries have negotiated national histories of genocide. Special focus will be on the Locker of Memory Memorial to the victims of the Jungfernhof concentration camp, an endangered site, currently under development.
