Abigail Miller - "Refugee - Survivors: Jewish Resettlement"

Thursday, January 28, 2016
12:30pm – 2:00pm

Storrs Campus
Dodd - Room 162

Abigail Miller is a third-year doctoral student at the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. Her work examines Argentina as a place of refuge for Jewish refugees during and after the Holocaust with a particular interest in refugee narratives of loss and recovery. This topic speaks to her interest in following Jewish refugees into the postwar decades, specifically looking at the ways in which Holocaust memory and trauma affected their resettlement and lives in Argentina.
