Pavinsky, welcomed the participants, noting its long-standing cooperation with the Holocaust Center. The conference was attended by over 30 students and young scholars.
The five topic sections included themes ranging from the Holocaust in Freud’s life and work and artistic interpretation of the Holocaust in Russian literature to the study of regional features of the Holocaust in Volhyn (Ukraine). The best participants will be selected to participate in a future presentation at UNESCO in Paris slated for July 2013.Source: http://www.unic.ru/news_inf/viewer.php?uid=267
