What did Holocaust memory look like in the immediate aftermath of liberation? Join Dr. Beth Cohen, Lecturer in Religious Studies and Jewish Studies at California State University Northridge, and Dr. Atina Grossmann, Professor of History at The Cooper Union, for a conversation about postwar Holocaust memory in the United States and Germany.
