This two-week seminar will rethink the prolific field of atrocity studies by exploring it from the perspective of victims. Using the Holocaust era as a case study, it aspires to determine the emotional demands of survival. Though usually the province of psychological study, traumatic injuries occur in contexts that historians are equipped to evaluate for their influence on victims' internal dynamics and legacies.
