Annual Spring Theodore Zev Weiss Lecture

Each May, HEFNU invites a distinguished scholar in the field of Holocaust studies to deliver the annual Theodore “Zev” Weiss Lecture in Holocaust Studies. This lecture is named for HEF founder, Zev Weiss, a survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau and several other Nazi camps. It honors his legacy of supporting innovative research and teaching in the field. The lecture also honors Zev’s family, many of whom were murdered in the Holocaust. The lecture takes place near the anniversary of the family’s deportation.
