A Community Scholar Program (CSP) member event will feature Dr. Shira Klein live on Zoom from Orange County on Sunday August 27, at 4 PM. “Whitewashing History: Distortion of the Holocaust on Wikipedia” will talk about how a group of Wikipedia editors has been spreading disinformation on the history of the Holocaust. With no obvious ties to any government, they slowly but relentlessly hack away at reason and accuracy, and promote a narrative touted by Polish nationalists. Wikipedia articles spin fantastical tales about Jews’ involvement in large-scale crimes against Poles and wildly inflate the scope of Jewish collaboration with the Nazis. Dr. Shira Klein, Associate Professor and Chair of the History Department at Chapman University, focuses on Italian Jewry, Jewish migration, and the Holocaust.
