Germany Launches First Holocaust Professorship

Seventy years after the end of the Second World War and the liberation of Nazi death camps by Allied troops, Germany is establishing its first-ever professorship devoted to the study of the Holocaust.

Goethe University in Frankfurt has secured funding to establish Germany’s first ever professor position dedicated to studying the Holocaust, the Hessian Ministry for Science and the Arts announced on Monday.

The programme will launch in 2017 to support a professor researching the history and impact of the Holocaust in which six million Jews were killed by the Nazi regime during the Second World War.

“Seventy years after the end of the Holocaust this is a long overdue step. In the land of the perpetrators, one must not forget what happened,” said regional Science Minister Boris Rhein in a statement.

“It is our duty to be at the forefront of this research. What is special about this Holocaust professorship is that it is not only about understanding the past. Specifically it is about the repercussions of the events up until the present, and that will be the focus of the research.”

The professor will collaborate as well with Frankfurt’s Fritz-Bauer Institute, which focuses on studying and documenting the Holocaust.

Similar professorships exist in countries like the United States, Poland and the Netherlands, and various German universities have programs to study the atrocities committed by Hitler and the Nazis. But this will be the first long-term professorship programme in the country to specifically research the genocide.

The state of Hesse said on Monday it would fund the professorship with €150,000 per year and the university has now begun searching for someone to fill the position.

“This new Holocaust professorship at Goethe University… sets a milestone for research,” said Goethe University Vice-President and Professor Manfred Schubert-Zsilavecz in a statement.

“It gives us the important impetus to better understand discrimination and oppression in the world by looking at the structure of the domination of Nazi control during the war.”

Re: Germany Launches First Holocaust Professorship

I'm sure many on here remember when the slogan 'never again' was used in reference to the holocaust/genocide. Now the term is 'never forget'. Like the song 'green fields of france' goes "young Willie McBride it all happened again and again, and again, and again and again"

Oh, and the irony of the university sharing its name with a Nazi war criminal is nowhere near lost on me.

Re: Germany Launches First Holocaust Professorship

This is cool, Germany should face their past instead of trying to ignore it like they have.

That's a broad generalization. Have you ever been to Germany?

History is epic though and the past should never be forgotten. I admire those who perserve it.

Eh, I meant more of their censorship of anything related to Nazi Germany. They didn't even allow Nazi Zombies in Call of Duty....that's a bit much.

Re: Germany Launches First Holocaust Professorship

So, I am aware that the the vast majority of people killed were Jews but they weren't the only people subject to genocide at that time. Why is there never any mention of anyone killed but the Jews?

Re: Germany Launches First Holocaust Professorship

I'm sure even with this "professorship" it will be heavily regulated, and any "real" research will be dorfed to just available archives.

I am still interested to see what will come of it, and of course who will be head of it.
