Sari Siegel Lectures on Jewish Survivor-Physicians in Transition: From DP Camp Doctors to Emigrants, 1945-1950

Sari Siegel, recipient of the 2019 Bernard and Mollie Steuer / JDC Archives Fellowship, gave her public lecture, which examines Jewish DP-physicians who provided medical care to fellow survivors in DP camps and DP health facilities in post-World War II Germany.

Sari Siegel is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Program in the History of Medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and a Visiting Assistant Professor at UCLA. Her research at the JDC Archives investigates Jewish DP-physicians focusing on their transition from caregivers to emigrants.

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.
