Historian Tells Story of 'Secret Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto'

A secret plot under the terror of Nazi occupation is the presentation by researcher and author Sam Kason Tuesday, February 28, at 7 p.m. in Albion College's Bobbitt Visual Arts Center. Kassow's presentation, "The Secret Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto," is sponsored by the College's Holocaust Studies Service Learning Project.

 

Professor of history at Trinity College, Kassow is author of "Who Will Write Our History? Rediscovering a Hidden Archive from the Warsaw Ghetto." His book tells the story of a clandestine group of Jewish scholars who chronicled the sufferings of Warsaw Ghetto residents in the last days before the Ghetto's destruction. Thousands of pages of these documents, buried in milk bottles and tin cans, continue to provide historian with invaluable information.

 

This presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, contact, Albion College's Ford Institute at 517/629-0368.
