A symposium to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Strassler Center’s doctoral program and to celebrate the long-term leadership of founding Strassler Center Director and inaugural Rose Professor Debórah Dwork gathers graduates to respond to the theme of agency in the Holocaust and Genocide. Agency addresses the choices that individuals have, their decisions and actions, as well as the consequence of these actions. The symposium participants, all of them former advisees of Debórah Dwork, will present diverse research projects that explore agency from multiple perspectives including victims, perpetrators, rescue, youth, gender, sexuality, education, religious observance, identity, humanitarianism, and memory.

Panel 1 – Gender Dynamics

Panel 2 – Youth and Identity

Panel 3 – Rescue and Relief

Panel 4 – Cultures of Memory and Reconciliation
