Holocaust Survivor Speaks on Campus
The University’s Education for Justice Office hosted the presentation “Holocaust Memory and the Tests of Time: Sustainable Remembering of a Relentless Past” by author and cognitive psychology professor Robert N. Kraft, Ph.D. The lecture was held Oct. 23 as part of the University’s 2013-2014 Education for Justice theme of “sustainable memory.”
Dr. Kraft’s 2002 book, “Memory Perceived: Recalling the Holocaust,” documents patterns of deeply traumatic memory in Holocaust survivors. His most recent book, “Violent Accounts,” analyzes the testimony of violent perpetrators and the confrontations between victims and perpetrators during South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Dr. Kraft serves as a professor of cognitive psychology at Otterbein University, Westerville, Ohio.
