20111107_NIOD_logoNIOD Institute for War, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies Lecture:  Violence Remembered, Violence Lived The Islamic State, Genocide and the Yazidis of Iraq (Friday 21 November, 13.30 – 17.00 h.)

The Yazidi minority of Iraq considers the rise of the Islamic State and the subsequent persecution of Yazidis to be the 73rd massacre in their history. This gathering focuses on the Yazidi experience of exterminatory violence. In drawing on empirical research we will analyze the historical memory of violence among Yazidis, as well as the current violence which embroils them. We will also consider critical issues in the international community’s response to this humanitarian crisis.

Eszter Spät (Department of Medieval Studies, Central European University)

Fazil Moradi (Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology and University of Halle)

Kjell Anderson (NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies)

Uğur Ümit Üngör (NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies)
