Dr. Devin Naar, From the Ottoman Empire to Auschwitz: The Mediterranean Jewish Experience of the Holocaust”

May 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Although usually understood as a “European” event, the Holocaust also resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of Sephardic Jews born in the predominantly Muslim world of the Ottoman Empire (Greece). Grappling with the particularities of their experiences compels us to expand the scope of the Holocaust into the eastern Mediterranean and to recognize the interconnections between the rise of Hitler’s empire and the making of the modern Middle East.
