Join Chhange for our virtual commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, featuring Dr. Devin Naar, Isaac Alhadeff Professor in Sephardic Studies and Associate Professor of History at the University of Washington. Dr. Naar will discuss the experiences of Sephardic Jews during the Holocaust. Sephardic communities flourished in Greece and other parts of the Mediterranean region for generations. When the Nazis invaded, the vast majority of these Jews were deported to concentration camps and murdered. Dr. Naar will help shed light on this often-overlooked part of Holocaust history.
