In commemoration of Yom Ha-Shoah, our Jewish History lecture on Monday night will be dedicated to a topic frequently overlooked in discussions of the Holocaust: the experience of Sephardim. Please click here for details.
Most of my own published work on the Holocaust has been in the Askhenazic world, notably my recent study of the Warsaw sermons of Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman Shapira (the “Aish Kodesh,” see below). For my overview of the Sephardic experience, please see “A Double Occlusion: Sephardim and the Holocaust.” In Sephardic and Mizrahi Jewry: From the Golden Age of Spain to Modern Times, edited by Zion Zohar, 285-299. New York: New York University Press, 2005.
