Dr Yorai Linenberg

Yorai Linenberg’s PhD, from the London School of Economics, dealt with the experience of American and British Jewish POWs in German captivity during the Second World War. He is now writing a book which is based on his dissertation, examining the German policy towards non-Soviet Jewish POWs, exploring their experience in German POW camps, and looking into how they maintained their Jewish identity in captivity. His article about the segregation of American and British Jewish POWs in German POW camps will be published next year in the Holocaust and Genocide Studies Journal.

Yorai holds an MSc in Physics and an MBA, both from the Tel Aviv University.
