The Soviet Child, the War and the Holocaust

International Symposium

Today, the voices of survivors and witnesses from the war in the East are those of people who lived through it as children. At a time when researchers and memorial institutions are gathering testimonies of these last witnesses of the genocide and the war, Yahad – In Unum and EUROM propose addressing the war in the East from the perspective of the fate of children, who were victims, witnesses, and among those requisitioned.


This symposium will treat the subject through the lens of different disciplines: history, anthropology, psychoanalysis, literature, neuroscience. It will stimulate reflection and consciousness-raising of the particularities of violence towards children and the place they occupy within a genocidal and criminal process as well as a war of extermination.
