A professor of Jewish history and the Head of the Institute for the History of Polish Jewry and Israel-Poland Relations at Tel Aviv University, Dr. Dreifuss also serves as the Director of the Center for Research on the Holocaust in Poland at the International Institute for Holocaust Research, Yad Vashem, Israel. Her path-breaking research deals with various aspects of everyday life during the Holocaust, including the relationship between Jews and Poles, religious life in light of the Holocaust, and Jewish existence in the face of extermination. Dr. Dreifuss’ “We Polish Jews”? The Relations between Jews and Poles during the Holocaust – The Jewish Perspective (Jerusalem: Yad Vashem, 2009) made a critically important contribution to the ongoing public and scholarly debates over the Shoah in German-occupied Poland. Her latest book, on which the talk will be based, The Warsaw Ghetto – The End (April 1942 – June 1943), just won the Shazar Prize for the Study of Jewish History.
Organized by the Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies, the program is co-sponsored by ASU Departments of History, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Religion and Philosophy.
