The Jewish Experience of the First World War

  • 11 Jun 2014 — 13 Jun 2014

The frenzied military, social, and cultural mobilisation of European societies from 1914 to 1918 had a profound impact on Jewish communities worldwide. WWI thus constitutes a seminal but surprisingly under-researched moment in the evolution of modern Jewish history. By bringing together scholars of different disciplines, the conference seeks to initiate a discussion on the place and multifaceted meanings of WWI for our understanding of the Jewish experience in Modern times.
