Dr. Ilan (Selwyn) Troen, professor of Israel studies at Brandeis, will speak on “The Shoah in Israeli Politics and Culture.”
Professor Troen attended Maimonides School in the 1950s and earned degrees from Brandeis and Hebrew College. He made aliyah in 1975 and joined the staff of Ben-Gurion University in Beersheva, serving as dean of humanities and social sciences and director of the Ben-Gurion Research Institute and Archives in Sde Boker.

Rabbi Wohlgemuth’s shul in Bavaria was attached by rioters on Kristallnacht and he was interned at Dachau for several weeks.+ More... - Less...
