Dr. Raz Segal earned his Ph.D. at the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies (History Department),
Clark University (2013). His work explores the Holocaust as integral to modern processes of imperial collapse,
social disintegration, and formation of new states. It focuses on two key issues: state and nation building and
the multi-layered mass violence against Jews and other groups that ensued from political visions and designs
during World War II; and relations between Jews and non-Jews in the broader frame of interethnic and inter-
religious relations amid war and state violence. Dr. Segal’s research stands at the intersection of modern
European history, Holocaust scholarship, Genocide Studies, and Jewish history, and links the Holocaust to
genocide and mass violence before, during, and after World War II.
