Topic of the first week
Black during the Holocaust
Black People during the Holocaust and Holocaust from Black perspectives.
Untold stories, fates and memories...
By Gloria Ssanyu Mukasa
The first thing that comes to mind for most people when they think about the Holocaust is Nazis and Jews. But the fact that Black people were also persecuted and killed is known to very few.
Why does it matter?
It is always important to see things from different angles to get the complexity of the picture. Since this month is dedicated to unseen and unheard (hi)stories, we would like to give voice to the fates and resistances of Black people, hear stories and voices from contemporary witnesses and link them to the (hi)stories of genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.
Also, we would love to give space to your (hi)stories: Share what you want to be heard.
