Storrs Campus
Konover Auditorium, Dodd Research Center

Please join us for the annual Academic Convocation on the Holocaust when Trinity College Professor Samuel D. Kassow will present "Time Capsules in the Rubble: the Secret Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto."

Professor Kassow is the author of Who Will Write Our History? Emanuel Ringelblum, the Warsaw Ghetto, and the Oyneg Shabes Archives in which he documents the efforts taken by Warsaw Ghetto prisoners to secretly preserve Jewish history and resist Nazi oppression in a courageous pursuit to bear witness to the Holocaust. Of the 60 people who worked on this mission, only three survived. Their testimony remains an incomparable resource for Holocaust study.

The Convocation is sponsored by the Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life Fierberg Lecture in Judaic Studies, the Human Rights Institute, and the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center.

A reception will immediately follow.

Attending this event counts toward sophomore honors credit.
