CERES Annual Ion Ratiu Lecture
December 9, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Two Worlds Apart?: The State, Antisemitism, and the Holocaust in the Soviet-Romanian Borderlands
In this talk, Dr. Diana Dumitru, Associate Professor of History at Ion Creangă State University of Moldova, will explore differences between how civilians treated the Jewish populations of Romania and the occupied Soviet Union during the Holocaust. The talk will discuss Soviet and Romanian nationality policies between World Wars I and II, as well as uncover the deadly impact this had during the Holocaust. Based on original archival research and hundreds of interviews with gentiles and Jews, the results suggests that relations between ethnic groups are not fixed and destined to repeat themselves, instead fluid and susceptible to change over time.
The event will be held in the McGhee Library, ICC Room 301.
