    Description

    Registration is not required for this event.

    Co-organized by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies and the University of Toronto’s Chancellor Rose and Ray Wolfe Chair of Holocaust Studies, this event explores the intersections of religion, ethno-nationalism, fascism, antisemitism, and violence in the era of the world wars. By analyzing the ways in which religious groups, institutions, and networks engaged political and social upheaval in and beyond Europe, we hope to identify broader patterns that can deepen our understanding of the dynamics shaping the roles of religious actors before and during the Holocaust.

    By bringing together scholars, teachers, students, and community members, the Mandel Center’s outreach symposia seek to enrich campus dialogue and forge connections with diverse audiences that will ensure the vitality of Holocaust studies in an increasingly interdisciplinary and multicultural academic landscape. The Mandel Center’s Programs on Ethics, Religion, and the Holocaust focus on the history of the churches’ response to the Holocaust, the roles of different religious communities during that period, and the ways in which religious institutions, leaders, and theologians have addressed this history and its legacy since 1945.

    The Chancellor Rose and Ray Wolfe Chair of Holocaust Studies is located within the Department of History and the Anne Tanenbaum Centre for Jewish Studies at the University of Toronto. Its goals are to produce and promote world-class scholarship on the Holocaust, to train undergraduate and especially graduate students in Holocaust Studies, and to connect researchers in Canada with their international counterparts. In keeping with its commitment to making high-quality research widely accessible, the Wolfe Chair welcomes the public at many of its events.

    Description

    In September 1945, a few months after the end of World War II, a group of young soccer enthusiasts founded a soccer association in the largest refugee and expellee camp in southwestern Germany. Through the meandering history of this remarkable soccer association, special attention is paid to the reciprocal effects of two mass phenomena: sports and migrant camps. The paper highlights the relevance of sports in the long-term process of integration of 12.5 million refugees and expellees into postwar German society.
