This year's annual Martin and Doris Rosen Summer Symposium features internationally-renowned Holocaust scholar professor Debórah Dwork from the City University of New York who will speak on “Kindertransporte During the Holocaust.”
From 1938-40, these transports brought close to 10,000 mostly Jewish children from Nazi Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland to safety in the United Kingdom. Dwork’s virtual lecture will take place on Wednesday July 21, from 2-3 p.m. EST.
Organized by the Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Peace Studies, this year's week-long 19th Rosen Symposium centers on the struggles and suffering of children in the Shoah.
