The Klaus Barbie Trial and the Jews of France7:00pm - 9:00pmVenue TBAAnnual Raul Hilberg Memorial Lecture
The Klaus Barbie Trial and the Jews of France
Speaker: Norman Goda, University of Florida
The trial of Klaus Barbie (the so-called “Butcher of Lyon”) in 1987 was France’s most notable Holocaust trial. The desire by French Jewish leaders to emphasie Jewish Holocaust testimonies pitted them against powerful forces in France that favored opposing narratives, from former members of the French resistance to post-colonial thinkers, who especially opposed Israel and sought to equate the Jewish State with Nazi Germany. The trial helps to explain underlying antisemitic forces in France today.
Norman J.W. Goda is the Norman and Irma Braman Professor of Holocaust Studies at the University of Florida. His books include Tales from Spandau: Nazi Criminals and the Cold War and The Holocaust: Europe, the World, and the Jews, 1918-1945.
