Since 1970, the Conference has been a critical forum for scholars to report the latest findings in Holocaust research—ensuring the valuable lessons of the Holocaust remain relevant for today’s world. Founders Franklin H. Littell z”l and Hubert G. Locke conceived the Conference as an interdisciplinary, international, interfaith, intergenerational gathering.
