The complexity of the Holocaust in its full magnitude, reaches into countless subjects, disciplines, and professions. In order to begin to fully deconstruct, analyze, and understand the Holocaust, interdisciplinary research that transcends all boundaries must occur. The Strochlitz Institute for Holocaust Research at the University of Haifa is proud to announce the publication of our newest addition to Dapim: Studies on the Holocaust, our interdisciplinary, peer reviewed academic journal.
Dapim: Studies on the Holocaust publishes three editions each year, featuring academic articles written by scholars from all parts of the world. The articles are focused on all subjects and disciplines that relate to Holocaust Studies, World War II, and Anti-Semitism and together begin to create a more developed and wholesome picture of important aspects of Holocaust research. Available in English and in Hebrew, Dapim: Studies on the Holocaust caters to a wide audience of scholars, students, and those who take interest in learning and reading about various aspects of the Holocaust and its aftermath.
Through the involvement with Strochlitz Institute for Holocaust Research, and the publication of Dapim: Studies on the Holocaust, the Weiss-Livnat International MA Program in Holocaust Studies has developed a strong network of Holocaust scholars based in all parts of the world, working on many various types of disciplinary and interdisciplinary research. We are proud to share this research and network with our students, who have a great platform to learn from as they enter the world as budding Holocaust scholars, and the future of Holocaust research.
The newest addition, Volume 29, Issue 3 is a special issue on the Final Stage of the Holocaust. Although the events from the last months of WWII played a crucial part in the Holocaust and how it has been remembered, only recently have scholars begun to give attention to this period. On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, this special issue presents a first collection of articles, based on current and up-to-date research projects, on different aspects of what can be termed the “final stage” of the Holocaust.
The special issue includes the following articles:
- “Evacuating the Camps: The Last Collective Crime of Nazi Society,” by Martin Clemens Winter.
- “The Politics of Human Remains at the ‘Peripheries of the Holocaust,” by Zuzanna Dziuban.
- “The Fortune of Survival – Intermarried German Jews in the Dying Breath of the ‘Thousand-Year Reich,” by Maximilian Strnad.
- “Survival of a Peculiar Remnant: The Jewish Population of Vienna During the Last Years of the War,” by Michaela Raggam-Blesch.
- “Everyday Life and Survival at Mauthausen during the Final Stages of War: The Hungarian Jews,” by Regina Fritz.
