Płaszów: Memory Overwritten

10am PST/1pm EST

Soraya Sarah Nazarian Program in Fine Arts

Over the last 200 years, the site of KL Płaszów, in the south of Krakow, has contained Austro-Hungarian military fortifications, two Jewish cemeteries, and a Nazi labor camp and concentration camp; today, it primarily functions as a public park.

The future of the site and the way its past is presented remain an open question. On a virtual tour with FestivALT co-director Adam Schorin, we’ll explore the history of this site, discover what remnants of its past lives are still present, and engage in a complicated debate about how the site should be treated today.
