Presentation by Fortunoff/VWI Fellow Julie Dawson

By Christy Bailey-Tomecek - October 14, 2020

Fortunoff/VWI fellow Julie Dawson will be giving a virtual presentation titled "'As to my emotional anguish, there are days when I feel endlessly miserable...': Hachsharot in Early Post-War Romania and the Limits of Belonging," at the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute on November 4, 2020 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM CET (9:00 AM to 11:00 AM EST). The presentation will examine the activities of Zionist youth organizations in Romania during the immediate postwar period using documents created by the Securitate (secret police) and the organizations themselves. Alongside this macrohistorical approach, Dawson will also take a microhistorical approach focusing on the experience of an individual through a set of recently found survivor diaries.
