Scholarly journal on Holocaust now published bilingually

HAIFA (Press Release)–Israel’s and one of the world’s first scholarly journals on the Holocaust, published in conjunction with the University of Haifa’s Institute for Holocaust Research since 1979, is now being published in English as well as the original Hebrew.

Dapim: Studies on the Shoah, The Journal of the David and Fela Shapell Family Foundation will be published as a bilingual multidisciplinary academic journal, appearing in both Hebrew and English beginning with its current volume.

The basic premise of Dapim: Studies on the Shoah is that study of the Holocaust, anti-Semitism and World War II requires a synthesis of diverse scholarly approaches from a range of fields. Now it is available for international readership and study, explains Prof. Arieh Kochavi, Chair of the Dapim editorial board.

As a multidisciplinary journal, Dapim encompasses a wide range of aspects relating to Holocaust study, such as philosophy, literature, jurisprudence, history and anthropology. Prof. Kochavi emphasized that the journal is unique in its constituting a forum where scholars can engage in dialogue that transcends national, ethnic, and disciplinary boundaries. It publishes studies by young writers alongside established scholars, and includes research from all around the world. The journal is published annually by the University of Haifa and the Ghetto Fighters’ House Museum and is a Journal of the David and Fela Shapell Family Foundation.

Among the eight scholarly articles in the first English volume are:

Joanna Tokarska-Bakir, anthropologist, University of Warsaw and the Polish Academy of Sciences: “The Unrighteous Righteous and the Righteous Unrighteous”
Andrej Angrick, historian, Hamburg Foundation for Science, Development, and Culture: “Power Games: the German Nationality Policy (Volkstumpolitik) in Czernowitz before and during the Barbarrosa Campaign”
Martin Hollar, doctoral student of History, Humboldt University, Berlin: “The Nazi Persecution and Extermination of Soviet Roma [‘Gypsies’] Under the German Military Administration”
Christoph Schmidt, Hebrew University of Jerusalem: “The Israel of the Spirit: The German Student Movement of the 1960s and its Attitude to Holocaust
Konrad Kwiet, historian, Sydney University: an insider’s account of the work of Australia’s Nazi War Crimes Commission in “The War Crimes Debate Down Under”.
