Hana Green is a doctoral candidate and Claims Conference Fellow at the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University. She holds a BA in History from the University of Florida and an MA in Holocaust Studies from the University of Haifa. Hana’s research interests lie at the intersections of gender and identity, and her dissertation project explores the experiences of Jews who passed as gentile, or as another, more protected group, before, during, and after the Holocaust. In addition to her academic work, she is a contributor to the Jewish Women’s Archive’s Encyclopedia of Jewish Women and a volunteer transcriptionist for the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum’s Oral History Project.
An article pertaining to her doctoral research, “Passing on the Periphery: A Call for the Critical Reconsideration of Research on Identity ‘Passing’ as a Jewish Response to Persecution During the Holocaust,” was published in The Journal of Holocaust Research (2022). A historiographical essay, “Transformations and Emergent Themes in American Jewish Women’s History,” is forthcoming in Women in Judaism: A Multidisciplinary e-Journal.
Green has been awarded several fellowships and research grants, including a Fritz Halbers Fellowship from the Leo Baeck Institute, a Hadassah-Brandeis Institute Graduate Research Award, a European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) Conny Kristel Fellowship, a Tauber Institute Graduate Research Award, and a DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst) Grant for Doctoral Candidates.
