2022 Ina Levine Annual Lecture

7 p.m. ET | 4 p.m. PT

Why did some Polish and Ukrainian communities violently attack their Jewish neighbors while others did not during World War II? What local minorities assisted Jews in unexpected ways? How did the killing centers continue to affect economic and political behavior in their areas over time?

Learn how a new generation of social scientists is using new concepts, methods, and data to answer questions like these and shed new light on the causes and consequences of the Holocaust.
