David Shneer, Louis P. Singer Endowed Chair in Jewish History and Professor of History, Religious Studies and Jewish Studies, had a busy summer of globetrotting.  He served as scholar-in-residence for the Helix Project that took students to Belarus, Lithuania, and Latvia. Next year, he plans to open a competition for a fellowship to support at least one CU student to participate in the study program, so stay tuned for more information.  
Following that, he gave a talk at the International Slavic Studies conference in Makuhari, Japan, about his new book project, Grief: The History of the World’s First Holocaust Liberation Photograph and the Man Who Took It, and will be presenting a paper on the subject at USC’s Casden Institute on Wednesday, September 9.
