UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies July-August 2006 Calendar SUMMER RESEARCH WORKSHOP DISCUSSION Intelligence Gathering and the Holocaust FRIDAY, AUGUST 11 2-4 P.M. Helena Rubinstein Auditorium, Lower Level The Center's Summer Research Workshop Program is designed to encourage cooperation among American and foreign scholars---both junior and senior---from a variety of disciplines, who work in closely related areas of Holocaust research but have limited opportunity for in-depth, face-to-face interaction. Workshops consist of two weeks of research and deliberation and culminate with a public presentation of the panelists' work. Workshop participants will examine newly discovered archival documents on intelligence activities during and after World War II, illuminating the degree to which intelligence agencies (Allied,Axis, or neutral), their operatives, and recruits were aware of the Holocaust. They will also consider the role of intelligence agencies in shaping the perspectives of their governments, including how they dealt with actual or alleged perpetrators during and following World War II, and the involvement of intelligence agencies in dealing with post-Holocaust issues such as displaced persons, property restitution, postwar trials, and cases of perpetrator immigration, denaturalization, and deportation.

ANNOUNCEMENTS Center-Sponsored Books about the Holocaust Lodz Ghetto: A History, by Isaiah Trunk, translated and edited by Robert Moses Shapiro, with an introduction by Israel Gutman In his comprehensive examination of the Lód´z ghetto, originally published in Yiddish in 1962, historian Isaiah Trunk described and explained the tragedy that befell the Jews imprisoned in the first major ghetto imposed by the Germans after they invaded Poland in 1939. Lodz had been home to nearly a quarter-million Jews. When the Soviet military arrived in January 1945, they found 877 living Jews and the remains of a vast industrial enterprise that had employed masses of enslaved Jewish laborers. Based on an exhaustive study of primary sources in Yiddish, Hebrew, Polish, German, and Russian, Isaiah Trunk, a former resident of Lodz, reconstructs the organization of the ghetto and discusses its provisioning; forced labor; diseases and mortality; crime; deportations; living conditions; political, social, and cultural life; and resistance. Included are translations of the 141 documents that Trunk reproduced in his volume.
