Elizabeth Anthony on "Where Do I Belong? Holocaust Survivors Return to Vienna"

Book Event

Please join Elizabeth Anthony, author of "The Compromise of Return" (Wayne State University Press, 2021) at the CUNY Center for the Study of Holocaust, Genocide, and Crimes Against Humanity for her book talk on February 17th.

This event is a part of the center's Spring 2022 Virtual Series: REFUGEES & DISPLACED PERSON.

Their Spring term virtual programs interrogate the meaning of "home" for survivors of genocide and forcibly displaced persons. Why did Holocaust survivors return home to Vienna? How do Afghan refugees create a home in Rochester, NY? And what of people who are forced to flee and find a temporary home where they land?

About the Center:
The mission of the Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Crimes Against Humanity is to promote the exchange of ideas across disciplines and generations. Serving as a hub for a vibrant community of scholars from many fields with convergent interests, the Center is a forum for innovative research, graduate student mentoring, and public programming. Reaching beyond the university, the Center is enriched by linkages with NGOs, cultural institutions, and supra-national organizations dedicated to the study and prevention of mass violence and its legacies.
