Why is the Holocaust one of the most widely researched topics? On a personal level, the event and its aftermath affected countless lives, and its impact has penetrated through the generations of those connected to it and those who find a connection to the story of the Holocaust. On a professional level, 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 additions 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 2 features three articles:
“Personal Action as Collectivist Reconciliation: Children of ‘Aryan’ Citizens of Nazi Germany Living in Israel” by Eli Somer and Yael Agam
“Portugal, Jewish Refugees, and the Holocaust” by Irene Flunser Pimentel and Cláudia Ninhos
“Nationalities, Histories, Rhetorics: Real/Reel Representations of the Holocaust and Holocaust Trials and a Poethics of Film and Law” by Caroline Joan S. Picart
