Mid-Week Field Notes | March 31, 2021

Three quick things this week:

  • My books arrived! 

37 Days at Sea package of books

  • Summer plans: I’ll be working on my database of Holocaust children’s literature, expanding it from the 1960s and through 2021. Then, I’ll take guidance from a statistician colleague to code the database so we can run the statistical analysis. By the end of the summer, I hope to have written up the “results” section of my dissertation.
  • Reminder: Coming up on April 7 to commemorate Yom HaShoah: The Mercer Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Center is hosting a conversation with Scott Miller, retired Director of Curatorial Affairs at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and co-author of Refuge Denied; Hans Fisher, professor emeritus of Rutgers University and MS St. Louis passenger; and me, Barbara Krasner, director of the Mercer Center and author of 37 Days at Sea: Aboard the MS St. Louis, 1939. Attendees can take advantage of a 20 percent discount on the purchase of my book from publisher Kar-Ben.
