Ph.D. 1999 “Heroes and Martyrs. The Memory of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising“, Zentrum für Antisemitismusforschung, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany
My PhD and my recent research on the conflict between the memory of the Holocaust and the Gulag focuses on the use of history for creating a particular identity, often used for one’s own political means and the conflicts arising from this. I am interested in undertaking further research on this subject and developing it in a wider context.
