Omer Bartov is considered one of the world's leading authorities on the subject of genocide. He is the author of seven books and the editor of three volumes; his work has been translated into several languages. His most recent book, Erased: Vanishing Traces of Jewish Galicia in Present-Day Ukraine (Princeton, 2007), examines the politics of memory in Western Ukraine and erasure of both the memory and the few material remains of Jewish culture there. Learn more about Professor Bartov.
The annual Hans Heilbronner lecture honors Hans Heilbronner, Professor of History, who served the University of New Hampshire with distinction from 1954 until 1991. He passed away in June of 2011.
