No Balm for their Wounds

Elderly Survivors in the Wake of the Holocaust

Leah Goldstein

As part of the "Zoom into Research" ongoing online lecture series presented by Yad Vashem's International Institute for Holocaust Research, Prof. Dan Stone of Royal Holloway, University of London, gave a fascinating presentation of a topic relatively under-investigated in Holocaust historiography: "Elderly Survivors in the Wake of the Holocaust."
