The United Nations Holocaust Remembrance Programme is pleased to invite you to join a virtual discussion on Wednesday, 20 September 2023 at 11AM CDT, of “Rain of Ash: Roma, Jews and the Holocaust” by award-winning author, Ari Joskowicz.

Professor Joskowicz, Chair of the Department of Jewish Studies, Vanderbilt University, will be in conversation with Professor Ethel Brooks, Founder of the field of Critical Romani Studies, and Chair of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Rutgers University. Raz Segal, Endowed Professor in the Study of Modern Genocide, Stockton University, chairs.

"Rain of Ash: Roma, Jews and the Holocaust” was awarded the 2022 Ernst Fraenkel Prize. The book explores the simultaneous suffering of Roma and Jews during the Holocaust, as well as the unequal yet necessary entanglement of their quests for historical justice and self-representation. The Jewish experience of genocide increasingly occupied the attention of legal experts, scholars, educators, curators, and politicians in the postwar years, while the genocide of Europe’s Roma and Sinti remained out of the frame.
