Trans-Atlantic connections and impacts have crucially shaped the ways in which people relate to one another, assert authority, and envision themselves as local, ethnic, political, ideological, and virtual communities.
This year marks the 74th anniversary of the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
