Sheer Ganor

Sheer Ganor’s research centers on German-Jewish history in the 20th century with a specific focus on diasporic communities of German Jews from 1933 through the 1960’s. In the course of her academic work she has dealt with a variety of themes, including post-Holocaust reparations to German-Jewish survivors, the cultural history of Jews in Germany after 1945, and the ongoing dialog between Israeli and German memory cultures and politics. Prior to beginning her doctoral studies in UC Berkeley’s Department of History, she participated in various historical research projects, such as the biographical study of Jewish students in Berlin in the 1930’s and Jewish/Muslim/Christian intersections in the Greek city of Thessaloniki.
