The University of Southampton is delighted to welcome Shreya Atrey from the Faculty of Law at the University of Oxford, who will be delivering this year's Stefan Cross Lecture on the topic of "Priority and Gender Equality". This talk argues that an intersectional approach to gender equality in international human rights law is necessarily prioritarian, drawing attention to those most disadvantaged. It unravels the implications of this approach to gender equality in the interpretation and implementation of state obligations in international human rights law.

To many, it seems that the genocide of the Jews has been forgotten in Poland for most of the post-war period and that it was only in the 1990s and 2000s that a few activists started to commemorate it. This lecture aims to offer a different, more nuanced image of Holocaust memory in Poland. While recognising the challenges and the silences of the post-war era, it charts the attempts to save the Holocaust from oblivion and from political manipulation in the years after 1945. Having reassessed the process of remembering and forgetting the Holocaust under socialist rule, the lecture offers an overview of the most recent memorial projects, including museums such as the one in Schindler’s Factory in Kraków and remembrance days organised annually to mark the Ghetto Uprising anniversary.
