Prof. Ari Kohen and I were the organizers of the Sommerhauser Symposium on “Antisemitism in the 1930s and Today” at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). The symposium covered aspects of antisemitism from the past and present in the U.S. and Europe. The conference papers will be published as the second volume in the new series “Contemporary Holocaust Studies” (University of Nebraska Press).
The 2019 meeting marked the third biennial Sommerhauser Symposium on Holocaust Education at UNL. The workshop was sponsored by the Lou Sommerhauser Fund for Holocaust Education, with additional support from the Forsythe Family Program on Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs, the Harris Center for Judaic Studies, and the UNL History Department.
