The Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies (VWI) and the United

are co-organizing an interdisciplinary conference on complicity and
collaboration in World War II and the Holocaust in the eastern part of
Europe. The conference will be held December 5-7, 2013 in Vienna. This
three-day conference will bring together scholars from all disciplines
working on complicity and collaboration in a number of Eastern European
countries to share their research with each other and the public.

A limited number of junior scholar stipends will be available to partially

countries to attend the conference without presenting a paper. Applicants

three years beyond conferral of their degree, and must reside in one of
the countries in the regions covered by this CfP. Scholars enrolled in
graduate programs or teaching at universities outside of these countries

curriculum vitae that indicates your current academic affiliation; (2) a

and research as well as his/her potential as a scholar to Krista Hegburg,
Ph.D., Program Officer, Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, at
