"Return of the Repressed: Representations of the Holocaust in Italian Film" - Lecture by Dr. Millicent Marcus

Dr. Millicent Marcus, Professor of Italian at Yale University, will deliver a public lecture on the representation of the Holocaust in Italian cinema and the repression (and consequent reemergence) of public memory regarding the conflicting roles that Italy and Italians played in the genocide of European Jews.

Prof. Marcus is a leading scholar of Italian Studies in the US. Among her many publications is her book on this subject, Italian Film in the Shadow of Auschwitz (University of Toronto Press).

This event is free and open to the public.
