Biography:
Klaus MUELLER, Germany Klaus Mueller [Chair] works as an international consultant for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, where he serves as the Museum's representative for Europe on the museum's core themes of Holocaust documentation and education; antisemitism today and genocide prevention. During the conception of the Museum's permanent Exhibition, Dr. Müller, an expert on the persecution of homosexuals under Nazi rule, served as a consultant, researching and overseeing the inclusion of material documenting the experiences of homosexuals under Nazism. He co-curated the museum's exhibition on "Anne Frank The Writer: An unfinished story" and developed "Do you remember when?", an online exhibit recording the life of a Jewish youth in Nazi Berlin. He has served on the US delegation to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance since 2009 and has chaired the Salzburg Global Initiative on Holocaust Education and Genocide Prevention since 2010. Dr. Mueller taught film history at the University of Amsterdam and has worked as an independent filmmaker. He was the initiator, research director, and associate producer of the award-winning film Paragraph 175 (2000), which profiles gay survivors of Nazi persecution, and assistant director of But I was a Girl (1999), documenting the life of lesbian Dutch resistance fighter and conductor Frieda Belinfante. He is a founding board member of the International Council of Museum's International Committee of Memorial Museums. In June 2013, he initiated and chaired the Global LGBT Forum at Salzburg Global Seminar, and in May 2014 chaired the Salzburg Global LGBT Forum in Berlin. Dr. Mueller holds a Ph.D. in sociology and a master's degree in German literature and philosophy, both from the University of Muenster, Germany.
