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

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.
