Katarzyna Person, Jewish Historical Institute, Warsaw
Thursday March 13th
Based on previously un-studied documents from the Honor Court of the Central Committee of Polish Jews and the DP Honor Courts in Germany, Austria and Italy, the lecture will discuss how through turning to Jewish honor courts for redress, Holocaust survivors were not only attempting to shame or ostracize alleged Jewish collaborators but also were signalling their personal investment in the Jewish community’s postwar self-renewal— taking charge of internal Jewish affairs and overcoming feelings of victimhood.
Katarzyna Person is a historian of Eastern European Jewish History working in the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw. After her PhD, awarded by the University of London in 2010, she held postdoctoral fellowships from the International Institute for Holocaust Research in Yad Vashem, the Center for Jewish History in New York City and La Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah. She has written a number of articles on the Holocaust and its aftermath in occupied Europe, and edited three volumes of documents from the Underground Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto. A book, based on her PhD thesis, which deals with assimilated, acculturated and baptised Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, will be published in 2014.
