"Reflections from Fifty Years of Listening to Holocaust Survivors: Contrarian Views." 

The Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies at Appalachian State University
October 6, 2020 7:00pm

The Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies invites the public to an online presentation by renowned oral historian and Holocaust studies scholar Dr. Henry  Greenspan, Lecturer Emeritus, from the Social Theory and Practice Program at the University of Michigan.

His presentation is entitled, "Reflections from Fifty Years of Listening to Holocaust Survivors: Contrarian Views."   The presentation will start at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, October 6, on Zoom.

In addition to sharing insights from his extensive and much-acclaimed work with Holocaust survivors, Dr. Greenspan's talk will examine the study of grief within mass death, reflected within the context of the Holocaust and the current pandemic.  
Dr. Greenspan has been interviewing, teaching, and writing about Holocaust survivors since the 1970s.  Rather than one-time “testimonies,” his approach has been to meet with survivors in sustained conversation over months, years, and, in a few cases, decades.  He is the author of the influential study, On Listening to Holocaust Survivors: Beyond Testimony, which details his approaches.

This online program is free of charge and open to the public.  The lecture will be followed by a Q-and-A.
