Claire Aubin on Holocaust Perpetrators
In this episode, Claire E. Aubin, a faculty member at Gratz College who will be a lecturer at UC Davis, discusses her work on Holocaust perpetrators, including her dissertation, "From Treblinka to Trenton: Holocaust perpetrators as immigrants to the post-war United States" and her recent article for Time magazine. Aubin explains why Holocaust perpetrators were able to emigrate to the United States without being caught, how they camouflaged themselves from immigration authorities, how some were caught, and why many escaped detection. She explains how studying the experiences of Holocaust perpetrators helps us better understand the historical context in which they were able to escape detection, present themselves as priority candidates for immigration to the United States, and disguise their past. Aubin is on Twitter at @ceaubin.
