25th Annual Rabin Holocaust/Third Brill Memorial Lecture: "History and Catas"

Thursday, April 20, 2017 07:00 pm

Speaker: Professor Samuel Kassow (Trinity College)

Location: The Lincoln Room of the Kellogg Center

During World War II Jews resisted not only with guns but also with pen and paper. Even in the face of death they left "time capsules"" full of documents, which they buried under the rubble of ghettos and death camps. The Ringelblum Archive in the Warsaw Ghetto buried thousands of documents. But of the 60 people who worked on this mission, only three survived. Professor Samuel Kassow (Trinity College) will discuss their story.

Co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Letters and James Madison College.
