Warsaw Ghetto - The End (April 1942-June 1943)


Join us for a special "Talking Memory" program marking the 78th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. We are honored to host Prof. Havi Dreifuss. The lecture will focus on Dreifuss' findings from her extensive research on the Warsaw ghetto, which is the basis for her latest book The Warsaw Ghetto - The End (April 1942 - June 1943).

Using a variety of sources, including diaries, testimonies, German documents, photographs and art, Prof. Dreifuss will construct a timeline of events from the great deportation in the summer of 1942, as well as the period just before and during the uprising that began on April 19th, 1943. Among the important insights from her ground-breaking research is a description of the relationship between the resistance fighters and the Jewish population at large and how the tens of thousands of Jews in the Warsaw ghetto became an integral part of the uprising.


This is a joint program with Classrooms without Borders.
