Julia Werner
Margee and Douglas Greenberg Research Fellowship

Julia Werner is a PhD candidate in history at Humboldt University, Berlin 


During her time at the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research, Werner conducted research for her dissertation project “Photography during National Socialism”, which was also funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). Werner used the Visual History Archive to explore the everyday photography of occupied Poland as a valuable source for both the history of the occupation and as an act of intervention, especially in acts of violence, everyday life and the processes of population policy.
