Shapiro Charitable Trust, enables the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies to bring a distinguished scholar to the Museum each year to conduct innovative research and writing about the Holocaust and to disseminate this work to the American public. The J.B. and Maurice C. Shapiro Senior Scholar-in Residence also leads seminars; lectures at universities in the United States; and serves as a resource for the Museum, educators, students, and the general public.
Donald Bloxham, the 2007–2008 J.B. and Maurice C. Shapiro Senior Scholar-in-Residence, is Professor of Modern History at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. An expert on the Holocaust and other genocides, Professor Bloxham is author of Genocide, the World Wars, and the Unweaving of Europe (2008); The Great Game of Genocide: Imperialism, Nationalism and the Destruction of the Ottoman Armenians (2005); and Genocide on Trial: War Crimes Trials and the Formation of Holocaust History and Memory (2001), among other works. The winner of the 2007 University of Edinburgh Chancellor’s Award, the 2007 Raphael Lemkin Award, and the 2006 Philip Leverhulme Prize, Professor Bloxham is spending his tenure at the Museum writing The Final Solution: A Genocide and Its Contexts (forthcoming, Oxford University Press), which examines the perpetration of the Holocaust in comparison with that of other genocides.
