Professor Sarah Federman About Her Forthcoming Book, The Last Train to Auschwitz (first of two presentations) (rescheduled from 1/6)

Monday, January 11, 2021 27 Tevet 5781

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

First of two presentations/discussions with Professor Sarah Federman, University of Baltimore. Professor Federman is Assistant Professor at the University's School of Public and International Affairs. Her forthcoming book, The Last Train to Auschwitz: The French National Railways and the Journey to Accountability (2021), considers the role of the French National Railways (SNCF) in the World War II Holocaust deportations, and the conflict that continues today in the United States over whether the company has done enough to make amends. Her findings draw on archival research, over 120 interviews (with Jewish leaders, historians, legislators, lawyers and over 80 Holocaust survivors) and pro bono work with the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Department of State.

This first presentation (the second will be on Thursday, January 21st, at 7:30 pm) will discuss stories from some of the survivors of those trains, and the various meanings of “justice” to these survivors (few people ask survivors what they need/want).
