The Dream of My Life Was Realized

Monday, March 7, 2016
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Susquehanna Hall : 3105

 “The Dream of My Life Was Realized" Mordecai Anielewicz in History and
Memory: Between Command and Leadership”

          Mordecai Anielewicz, the commander of the Warsaw Ghetto
Uprising, is one of the most renowned Jewish heroes of the
Holocaust. Yet based on numerous war-time accounts as well as
later testimonies, there are some questions regarding when and
why he was appointed commander of the ZOB (the Jewish Fighting
Organization) that may shed light on hitherto unknown aspects
of the Uprising, as well as its commemoration in Israel and
throughout the world.

          Havi Dreifuss is an associate professor at the Department of
Jewish History at Tel Aviv University and heads the Center for
Research on the Holocaust in Poland at the International
Institute for Holocaust Research at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.
Currently she is a fellow at the Mandel Center for Advanced
Holocaust Studies of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, working
on "Religious Life during the Holocaust: The Beginning of the
End".
