I’m Ari Joskowicz author of Rain of Ash: Roma, Jews, and the Holocaust AMA

Hi, I’m a historian of European Jewry and the Holocaust with a special interest in the complicated relations between different minority groups. I serve the chair of the Department of Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University, where I teach on the Holocaust and the history of antisemitism. My most recent book, Rain of Ash: Roma, Jews, and the Holocaust, is a new history of the genocide of Roma and Jews during World War II and their entangled quest for historical justice. It won the 2023 Frankel Prize in Holocaust Studies and was a Finalist for the National Jewish Book Prize. I also published widely on Jewish intellectual history, Romani history, the digital humanities, and the history of Jewish critiques of the Catholic Church.

Very much looking forward to your questions!
