UTRA Spring 2014 Award, "Bonds of Life. Reconstructing the Social Networks of Holocaust Survivors"

December 16, 2013

Amelia Armitage '15, Jennifer Sieber' 14 and faculty sponsor Paris Papamichos Chronakis, Visiting Assistant Professor of History, will collaborate with Jean Bauer from the Center for Digital Scholarship to reconstruct the survival networks of Greek Jewish Holocaust survivors in the Auschwitz concentration camp. The project will analyse audiovisual Holocaust survivor testimonies in English, Hebrew, Greek, and French to examine the breadth, depth and nature of these networks. Applying digital tools, the research team will devise visualizations which will be publicly accessible through a dedicated website.
