Professor Atina Grossman, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science, New York

In this lecture, renowned historian Professor Grossmann addresses a transnational Holocaust story that has remained untold: the plight of Jewish refugees in Soviet Central Asia, Iran and India. She seeks to integrate these largely unexamined experiences and lost memories of displacement and trauma into our understanding of the Shoah, and to remap the landscape of persecution, survival, relief and rescue during and after World War II.
