Lucy S. Dawidowicz

Lucy S. Dawidowicz

Historian and author Lucy S. Dawidowicz (1915 - 1990) was a controversial figure not only because of her opinions about Jewish life and history but also because of her methodology. She was not afraid to immerse herself in the world of her people, believing her analyses could combine passion and objectivity.

Institution: American Jewish Historical Society.
