Conscious History: Polish Jewish Historians before the Holocaust
|Date||Tue, Oct 19, 6:00pm - 8:00pm|
The Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies at Appalachian State University, NC, and the Stan Greenspon Holocaust and Social Justice Education Center at Queens University, Charlotte, invite the public to a lecture by Dr. Natalia Aleksiun, the Harry Rich Professor of Holocaust Studies at the University of Florida-Gainesville.
Her talk is entitled "Conscious History: Polish Jewish Historians Before the Holocaust." Dr. Aleksiun will be speaking to us from Warsaw, Poland, where she is currently conducting research. Like all Center lectures, this event is free of charge and publicly accessible. For security reasons, audience members are muted for the duration of the program, but will be able (and encouraged) to ask questions in the Q&A.
Dr. Natalia Aleksiun is a specialist in the social, political, and
cultural history of modern East European and Polish Jewry and has written
extensively on the history of the Jewish intelligentsia in East Central Europe,
Polish-Jewish relations, modern Jewish historiography, the history of medicine
and the Holocaust. She holds doctoral degrees from Warsaw University, Poland,
and NYU, United States. She has published widely in English, Polish, and
Hebrew. In addition to her 2021 study Conscious History, she is the
author of Dokad dalej? Ruch syjonistyczny w Polsce 1944–1950 (Where
To? The Zionist Movement in Poland, 1944–1950) (Warsaw, 2002) and co-editor
of several volumes, including Polin: Studies in Polish Jewry, vol. 29:
Writing Jewish History (2016) (with Antony Polonsky).
