The event is part of our Memory Futures series supported by the European Union.
The project “Memory Futures” was inspired by research examining the role of memory in imagination and future thinking. Recent neurological and neuropsychological studies reveal striking similarities between remembering the past and imagining or simulating the future, including that the same part of our brain is responsible for both our memory and for dreaming and imagination. It is not only true that the more we can remember the more we can understand, but also that the more we remember, the more creative and bold we can be when anticipating the future. Conversely, as studies of amnesia patients indicate, the inability to remember the past results in an inability to imagine or anticipate the future. Remembrance, therefore, is a crucial prerequisite of imagining our common future in Europe and the future of the European Jewish community.
