IDEA Office Hosts “Future of Auschwitz” Panel Discussion

SCI-Arc design faculty Eric Kahn and Russell Thomsen of IDEA Office in Los Angeles will present their project, "Thinking about the Future of Auschwitz" on Sunday, January 27, starting 2:30pm at the Colen Center at the American Jewish University. The event features a conversation with Eric Kahn, Russell Thomsen, Jeffrey Kipnis, Michael Berenbaum and Mark Smith.

"Thinking about the Future of Auschwitz" is a response to a manifold dilemma: how can the disappearing evidence of the Shoah at Auschwitz Birkenau be contemplated in perpetuity without resorting to expedient—and highly problematic—mandates for the maintenance of its fragile physical status and the interpretation of its profound historical implications?

The event is hosted by the Sigi Ziering Institute at the American Jewish University; RSVP at 310-440-1279 or osaig@ajula.edu. The American Jewish University is located at 15600 Mulholland Drive, Bel Air, CA 90077.
