Prof. Dan Michman is Head of the International Institute for Holocaust Research at Yad Vashem. Originally from Amsterdam, he has played a major role in teaching and researching the Holocaust since the 70s, while it was still an emerging academic field.

Prof. Michman has published numerous books and articles, in a variety of languages, on the history of Dutch Jewry, Israeli society, and various aspects of the Holocaust: From historiography to ghettos, Jewish leadership to refugees, migrants and survivors.

He joins Rogel Alpher in studio to discuss, amongst other things, his research on the 'core' of the Holocaust, which he believes was a much larger enterprise than a genocide of Jews.
