Additional Notes:
It has been remarked that, before the total destruction of Austria's Jewish culture in the Holocaust, the “only true Austrians” were the Jewish Austrians. Join us for a discussion between scholars of Jewish-Austrian culture and former Jewish-Austrian exiles on how “Old Austria” is remembered in the United States today. Tim Corbett, a Prins Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Jewish History, will speak about his new research in the archives of the Leo Baeck Institute. The discussion that follows will include Professor Jess Olson (Yeshiva University) and former exiles and New York residents Trudy Jeremias and Kurt Sonnenfeld.

Additional Notes:
Stalins sudden collapse and death in March 1953 was as dramatic and mysterious as his life. In his new book The Last Days of Stalin, Joshua Rubenstein presents a fresh, riveting account of the dictators final active months, the vigil at his deathbed, and the unfolding of Soviet and international events that followed. Guiding us through video, photo, and personal accounts of the time, Joshua Rubenstein will share his research and compelling conclusions. Two witnesses will share accounts of Russian Jews reactions to Stalins death. He will then be joined by Jonathan Brent, Executive Director of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research and author of Stalins Last Crime, for a discussion of the challenges—and significance—of studying this turning point in the twentieth century.

Following the presentations, a reception and book signing will be held in the Paul S. and Sylvia Steinberg Great Hall.

This event is sponsored by a generous grant from Dina and Jonathan Leader.
