The Romanian Paradox

Yad Vashem Research Fellow Investigates Romanian Jewish Leadership During WWII

Leah Goldstein

In the spring of 2021, Yad Vashem's International Institute for Holocaust Research hosted Dr. Gaëlle Fisher of the Leibniz Institute for Contemporary History in Munich on a three-month virtual fellowship. Dr. Fisher grew up in France, and then went on to study German and East European History. Her current topic of investigation is "The Romanian Jewish Leadership during the Holocaust: Perceptions and Actions."
