Holocaust Scholar Eva Fleischner

Dr. Eva Fleischner (1925-2020) was an accomplished and distinguished Holocaust scholar. For many years, Dr. Fleischner was deeply involved in our Center. She was a long-time member of our advisory board, and spoke often at our conferences. In addition, Dr. Fleischner received our highest honor, the Nostra Aetate award, for her outstanding contributions to improving Jewish-Catholic relations.

Through their generous contributions, Dr. Fleischner and her family have endowed the Fleischner Lecture Series, which enables us to bring scholars to the Seton Hill campus to discuss their research on the Holocaust, genocide and inter-religious understanding. 

Recent Event:

On March 10, 2021, the Eva Fleischner Lecture was sponsored by Hans and Leslie Fleischner and hosted by the National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education at Seton Hill University.

John K. Roth, the Edward J. Sexton Professor Emeritus of Philosophy and the Founding Director of the Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights at Claremont McKenna College offered his remarks on Eva's wonderful life work. Dr. Roth’s presentation titled, “The Memory of Goodness: Eva Fleischner and her Contributions to Holocaust Studies”, explored these dual aspects of Eva Fleischner’s contributions while also paying tribute to her life.
