In this talk, Dr Arthur Chapman analyses the notion of learning lessons from the Holocaust.
The ‘lessons of the Holocaust’ figure centrally in much discourse about the Holocaust in education and in public life and yet the notion of learning lessons from the past is controversial for historians.
Dr Chapman explores historiographic and philosophical arguments around the validity of this construct.
