 Holocaust Memorial Day 2023: Jews, Gay People and the Holocaust 

 Online film series and live-streamed panel discussion with public Q&A, 2-8 February 2023 

 Chiming with the 25th anniversary of the release of the controversial landmark film Bent (UK / Japan 1997), the five films in this online series explore the predicaments of gay people and Jews during the Holocaust and its aftermath among the postwar generation. The concluding panel discussion with public Q&A brings together researchers with Jewish and LGBTQ community and cultural practitioners who will consider the distinct Holocaust histories and partly clashing cultural memories at hand.
