Description

In those nightmarish days: Ghetto reportage and Holocaust witnessing

Professor Samuel Kassow
Charles H Northam, Professor of History at Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut

The Holocaust Research Institute is pleased to present Professor Samuel Kassow as the Schiff Visiting Professor of Holocaust Studies for 2019/2020. A historian of Jewish history and the Holocaust, Professor Kassow is internationally acclaimed for his work on the Oneg Shabbat archive in the Warsaw Ghetto. He will be in residence at Royal Holloway from 13 January to 3 February 2020.

This lecture will focus on the “real time” reportage of Jewish journalists: Peretz Opoczynski in the Warsaw Ghetto and Joseph Zelkowicz in the Lodz Ghetto. Neither survived the war but their descriptions of the ghetto everyday were preserved in the ghetto archives.
