The summer school Cultural Trauma: Holocaust and Genocides in the East (Lesvos, Greece, 20-25 August), explores three cases of genocides/cultural traumas, each one of them strongly related to the religion of the persecuted ethnic groups: the Yazidi of northern Iraq, the Jewish community of Thessaloniki, and the Pontic Greek community of Asia Minor. To this effect the summer school is bringing together key members of the three persecuted communities to present their cases and to reflect on the ways their respected communities have dealt with the traumatic experience. The school invites people who are interested to attend the talks and participate in following discussions around the issues. Participants receive a diploma of attendance. For more information:
