Dr. David Engel, Holocaust scholar and author of multiple books on the Holocaust will lecture about the treatment of Jews specifically in Poland during the Holocaust.

Engel is a Professor of Holocaust Studies & the Chair of Hebrew & Judaic Studies at New York University. Some of his publications include: Historians of the Jews and the Holocaust, Zionism (A Short History of a Big Idea), The Holocaust: The Third Reich and the Jews, Facing a Holocaust: The Polish Government-in-Exile and the Jews, 1943-1945, and numerous research articles, reviews, and writings. Dr. Engel holds a doctorate in history from the University of California, Los Angeles, and completed postdoctoral study at Hebrew University’s Division of Holocaust Studies, Institute for Contemporary Jewry, in Jerusalem.
