Alexandra Kramen Lectures on the Struggle for Holocaust Justice in the Jewish Displaced Persons Community of Föhrenwald, 1945-1957

Alexandra Kramen, the recipient of the 2020-2021 Fred and Ellen Lewis/JDC Archives Fellowship, lectured on how Jewish DPs living just outside of Munich in Föhrenwald, the longest-running Jewish DP camp in postwar Europe, conceived of and acted upon justice for the harms they and their loved ones suffered during the Holocaust.

Ms. Kramen is a Claims Conference fellow and Ph.D. candidate in History at Clark University’s Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies in Worcester, Massachusetts.

The JDC Archives Fellowships allow scholars engaged in graduate level, post-doctoral, or independent study to conduct research in the JDC Archives, either in New York or Jerusalem. All fellows give a public presentation on their research; watch more of these JDC fellowship lectures here.
