The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research is hosting this symposium to honor the work of leading Holocaust scholar David Cesarani from Great Britain, who died last year just weeks after being named the inaugural Sara and Asa Shapiro Scholar in Residence. The symposium will feature international scholars such as David Silberklang and Robert Rozett (both at Yad Vashem) and Todd Endelman (University of Michigan), who will discuss Cesarani’s work, his impact on Holocaust studies, and the connections between their own work and his contributions to the field. 

A prolific researcher and author, Cesarani’s books include Eichmann: His Life and Crimes; Arthur Koestler: The Homeless Mind; Justice Delayed: How Britain Became a Refuge for Nazi War Criminals; Major Farran's Hat: Murder, Scandal and Britain's War Against Jewish Terrorism 1945-1948; Disraeli: The Novel Politician (Jewish Lives); and Final Solution: The Fate of the Jews 1933–1949.

In addition to serving as a research professor at Royal Holloway, University of London, Cesarani was an active public intellectual and historical advisor on many film, TV and radio documentaries in the United Kingdom. He was also an early supporter of USC Shoah Foundation.

Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP at cagr@usc.edu.
