The present volume originates from the International Colloquium on the “Contemporary Memorialisation of the Holocaust in Central and Eastern European Countries” which took place at the “Elie Wiesel” National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust (Bucharest, Romania) on the 11th- 12th of October 2019. A selection of the colloquium papers is now presented in this thematic volume on “Holocaust Memoryscapes” in Central and Eastern Europe, an overarching trope that captures authors’ perspectives on the memory-work in these countries, with a special focus on the Romanian post-communist context. This scientific event was focused on the major themes of ongoing research on the Holocaust memorialisation in post- communist contexts. It was organised in connection with the research project entitled “Coming to Terms with National History and Participation in Contemporary Memorialisation of the Holocaust in Central and Eastern European Post-communist Countries”. This research project was hosted by the INSHR EW – The “Elie Wiesel” National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania, and it was financed by the UEFISCDI – The Executive Unit for Financing Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation (PN-III-P1-1.1-TE-2016-0811, Contract 31/2018, 02/05/2018 – 30/04/2020). Therefore, I would like to acknowledge the support of UEFISCDI which made possible the publication of this volume. I would also like to express my gratitude and appreciation for our hosts, notably, to Professor Alexandru Florian, General Director of the INSHR EW, for his strong institutional support, and firm belief in the value of our undertaking. Due to his valuable advice at various stages of this project and ongoing mentoring, the research has properly developed in relevant directions. I particularly thank the contributors to this volume for their inspiring research papers which made our editorial work a most rewarding enterprise. Their case studies and theoretical frameworks added valuable insights to the topic of the “Holocaust Memoryscapes” in post-communist European contexts. I am most grateful to Raul-Michael Cârstocea for his diligent proofreading of our papers and constructive feed-back on the preparation of this volume. Last but not least, I want to express my appreciation for all the colleagues at INSHR EW for their contributions to our overall project.
