“Ethnic Cleansing” and Genocide in Subcarpathian Rus’
Feb 1 2010


NATALIE AND MENDEL RACOLIN MEMORIAL LECTURE • MAX WEINREICH CENTER

Raz Segal, Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Clark University

Mr. Segal situates the Holocaust in Subcarpathian Rus' (SR) in the multiethnic context of the region during the interwar period and World War II. This context framed Jews' expectations of non-Jews, thus shaping their responses to Hungarian and German persecution and annihilation policies.

The lecture deals not only with death and destruction, but also addresses the unique aspects of Jewish existence in multiethnic SR; an understanding of the annihilation of SR Jewry is impossible without an analysis of the life that preceded it.
