Michael Rothberg is the leading Holocaust theorist in the United States and Saul Friedländer’s successor in the prestigious chair in Holocaust studies at UCLA. The pioneer of a post-colonial approach to the Shoah, he has, for example, explored the meaning of the Holocaust for the civil rights movement. His latest research addresses the role of the Holocaust in the lives of Europe’s migrants. What does the memory of the Shoah mean for Turkish-Germans? And what forms of solidarity could exist between Muslim and Jewish communities? In conversation with Wien Museum director Matti Bunzl.
