Remembering the Shoah in the GDR was not a success story. But even before the state-enforced events on the 50th anniversary of the November pogroms in 1988, there were impulses to keep the memory of Jewish victims alive and to articulate a stubborn form of anti-fascism. The lecture sheds light on these attempts and outlines developments in commemoration since the late 1970s.
