The 2014 Silberman Seminar for University Faculty, June 2–13, 2014, Washington, DC, is designed for professors of all disciplines teaching or preparing to teach courses about the Holocaust or related topics and who wish to further their understanding of the Holocaust in the Soviet Union.
The Seminar will present the latest scholarly findings on the Holocaust in the Soviet Union and provide an overview of ideological aims and tactics used in “the East.”
Participants will examine the Soviet Jewish communities and culture prior to World War II, and the relations between Jews and other Soviet nationalities within the context of modern Russian history and the impact of the Stalinist regime. Sessions will include discussions on pedagogical strategies across multiple disciplines.
The Seminar will be co-led by Jeffrey Veidlinger, Professor of History and Judaic Studies at the University of Michigan; and Lynne Viola, Professor of History, University of Toronto, Canada.
