Remapping Relief and Rescue: Flight, Displacement, and International Aid for Jewish Refugees During World War II

The talk focuses on a key aspect of Jewish Holocaust experience: Polish Jews' struggle for survival in the unoccupied Soviet Union and the relief efforts for Jews in Central Asia mounted by the "Joint" and other Jewish groups, to try and sustain what would become the core of the "She'erit Hapleta," the surviving remnant of East European Jewry. It was this group of some 200,000 Jews that was repatriated to Poland after the war where renewed murderous antisemitism drove survivors to the Displaced Persons camps of occupied Germany and to new homelands outside Europe. Atina Grossmann is Professor of History in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the Cooper Union in New York City. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 7, 2012
