Memories of the Forgotten Holocaust: The Jews of Wolyn, 1900-2000
03/24/2014: 6:00PM - 7:30PM
TCC 450 - The Forum
The USC Shoah Foundation presents a special presentation by Dr. Douglas Greenberg, Rutgers University Distinguished Professor of History.
USC Shoah Foundation's 2013-14 Institute Scholar, Dr. Douglas Greenberg, will look at the lives of Jews before, during, and after the Holocaust in the Wolyn district of modern Ukraine.
Greenberg's current research relies on about 500 video interviews in the Shoah Foundation archive. The project aims to reconstruct the experience of the survivors of Wolyn, who came from a place where 250,000 Jews were murdered in their own communities without ever entering a death camp.
Survivors of the Shoah in Wolyn have not seen the murder of their families and friends included in public memory of the Holocaust and worry that their experience has been forgotten.
