This lecture will be presented by Dr. Eugen Schoenfeld. Eugen Schoenfeld was born in 1925 in the Carpathian town of Munkacs in what is now Ukraine. He was raised and educated in the deeply rooted traditions of the Jewish faith amid a large and active Jewish community. However, Hitler’s Final Solution would irrevocably change his close-knit family. Having survived the ghetto and internment in Germany’s infamous camps, the young man immigrated to the United States to begin to rebuild his life and complete his formal education with an education at Washington University in St. Louis. He later went on to an illustrious academic career, in which he chaired the Department of Sociology at Georgia State University, where he developed the department’s Ph.D. program. Dr. Schoenfeld is the author of many books, and is a columnist for the Atlanta Jewish Times.
