Michael Berkowitz,  University College London

Berkowitz explores the engagement of European Jewry with photography in Eastern Europe during the interwar period and the Holocaust.  Some managed to work in Nazi ghettos after 1939 leaving a body of work which has yet to be examined and appreciated.

Michael Berkowitz is a professor of modern Jewish history at University College London and editor of Jewish Historical Studies: Transactions of the Jewish Historical Society of England.
