for interdisciplinary Holocaust research

Prof. Lisa Silverman PhD

Visiting Professorship, Summer Semester 2022

In the summer semester 2022, Prof. Lisa Silverman PhD holds the Michael Hauck Visiting Professorship for Interdisciplinary Holocaust Research at the Fritz Bauer Institute. She is a historian and Associate Professor for History and Jewish Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (USA). Her first book, Becoming Austrians. Jews and Culture between the World Wars, focuses on Jewish history in Austria in the 1920s and 1930s. Silvermans second book, forthcoming, explores the history of anti-Semitism in Germany and Austria after 1945. She is currently conducting research on the »Aryanization« of Jewish property in Nazi Germany. She has received numerous awards for her academic teaching. Most recently, she co-published with Daniel H. Magilow the textbook »Holocaust Representations in History. An Introduction« (2019).

In the summer semester, Lisa Silverman offers two courses at the History Department of Goethe University. A seminar deals with the history of anti-Semitism in Europe after 1945 and a tutorial, titled »Representations of the Holocaust. From Commemoration to Trivialization« focuses on the changing ways of dealing with the Holocaust.

History of the visiting professorship

The »Visiting Professorship for interdisciplinary Holocaust research« created at the Fritz Bauer Institute for the first time in 2001 was revived in 2015 through generous funding provided by Michael Hauck and his son-in-law Oliver Puhl. Michael Hauck died on 18 January 2018 at the age of 90, in Frankfurt am Main. Financial support has now been established for another five years for the visiting professorship named after Michael Hauck with funds provided by the »Michael Hauck Foundation« in combination with continued support from the »Puhl Foundation«.

The visiting professorship is part of the Fritz Bauer Institute, and offers scholars researching the history and impact of the Holocaust from an historical perspective the opportunity to come to Frankfurt for one semester. There they teach courses and give lectures at the History Seminar of Goethe University and pursue their research projects at the Fritz Bauer Institute.
