The Tony Judt Memorial Lecture recognizes NYU historian Tony Judt, who directed the Remarque Institute until his death in 2010.

EDITOR’S NOTE

The Remarque Institute was created at New York University in 1995 under the direction of Professor Tony Judt. Its purpose is to support and promote the study and discussion of Europe and to encourage and facilitate communication between Americans and Europeans. The Institute was named after Erich Maria Remarque, whose widow, Paulette Goddard, made a bequest to New York University.
