In “Case Closed: Holocaust Survivors in Postwar America,” Cohen provides a view through the eyes of those who lived it, challenging the conventional narrative of postwar easy acculturation and illuminating the complexity of the newcomers’ lives as “New Americans.”
Cohen received her Ph.D. in Holocaust history from Clark in 2003, in the first graduating class from this landmark program. After graduation, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies awarded her a “Life Reborn” Fellowship.
