A Mysticism of Open Eyes: Johann Baptist Metz's Case for the Spiritual Work of Remembering Auschwitz

-

Location: 216 DeBartolo Hall

This lecture is presented as part of "Remembrance: the Holocaust in a Global Context," a special series of lectures, films, and gallery talks commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
 
The exhibition, which will be on display from September 28, 2015 through October 9, 2015 in the Great Hall of O'Shaughnessy Hall, investigates how Germany has come to terms with its past, and encourages visitors to ask questions about how we remember the past. What do we remember, how do we remember, and why do we remember? The exhibition focuses on Germany after 1945, but encourages visitors to compare the experiences of that country to the ways in which their own societies are facing up to issues in their pasts - and presents - that may still be unresolved.
 
"Remembrance: The Holocaust in a Global Context" is presented by The Department of German and Russian in cooperation with The Department of Theology, The Nanovic Institute for European Studies, The Center for Civil and Human Rights, The Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, The Program in Religion and Literature, and The Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts.
