On Wednesday, February 27, the Holocaust Living History Workshop series will feature Wolf Gruner, the Shapell-Guerin Chair in Jewish Studies and professor of history at USC. Gruner is also the founding director of the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research.

In this talk, Gruner challenges the common misconception that Jews submitted passively to Nazi persecution. Drawing on various new sources such as the logbooks of Berlin police precincts, trial materials from various German cities, as well as video testimonies held in the USC Shoah Foundation Institute’s Visual History Archive, he demonstrates the prevalence of individual acts of resistance by German Jews from 1933 to 1945.
