JDC Archives Fellowship Lectures Available Online

Learn more about JDC history from the comfort of your home

Do you find yourself with a little extra time on your hands? Want to learn something new from scholars in the field? Then the JDC Archives fellowship lectures are for you!

Since 2012, the JDC Archives has annually awarded fellowships to deserving scholars engaged in graduate level, post-doctoral, or independent study to conduct research in the Archives, either in New York or Jerusalem. Many of these lectures have been video-recorded and are available on the JDC Archives website for viewing at any time.

Jan Lanicek, recipient of the 2019 Ruth and David Musher JDC Archives Fellowship, giving his lecture on relief food parcels for Jews in occupied Europe during World War II.

Interested in learning more about Soviet Jewish immigration to the West in the 1970s and 1980s? We have a lecture on this topic!

Perhaps you’d rather learn more about the persecution of Jews with Polish citizenship in the German Reich? Our website includes a lecture on this topic as well!

The fellowship lectures cover a variety of geographic locales and time periods.

If you are a research scholar, these lectures could help you discover new resources for your own research or reveal a new approach to a well-known topic. If you are a family researcher, these lectures could provide much-needed context to your family’s experience. And if you’re neither or both, the lectures are simply a wonderful way for you to learn something new from the comfort of your own couch!
