Dr. Patt is the Philip D. Feltman Professor of Modern Jewish History at the Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Hartford, where he is also director of the Museum of Jewish Civilization. He was also co-editor—with Michael Berkowitz—of a collected volume on Jewish Displaced Persons, titled We are Here: New Approaches to the Study of Jewish Displaced Persons in Postwar Germany (Wayne State University Press, 2010). Dr. Patt’s accomplishments are many and we are very pleased he has graciously agreed to speak about this all-too-obscure facet of post-World War II Jewish life as well as under what conditions these books, pamphlets, etc., were created and why.
