MELROSE PARK, Pa.—Art Spiegelman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning artist, illustrator and author of Maus: A Survivor’s Tale, will speak Sunday, March 7, 2021, during the biennial Arnold and Esther Tuzman Memorial Holocaust Teach-In at Gratz College. The entire Teach-In program will be presented online.

Seven renowned Holocaust scholars have joined a newly established advisory board for Gratz College’s Holocaust and Genocide Studies Program. Members include some of the most distinguished academics and prominent leaders in the areas of Holocaust history, commemoration and genocide prevention.

Recent program growth and increased enrollment have prompted the Board of Governors at Gratz College to announce an expansion and reorientation of the college’s senior staff. At the conclusion of the 2020-21 academic year, President Paul Finkelman will become Chancellor of the College and the Haym Solomon Distinguished Professor of History. This new position will facilitate continued growth of Gratz by allowing Dr. Finkelman to focus on strategic planning, development, new partnerships with other institutions, and expansion of Gratz’s academic footprint. Dr. Finkelman will continue serving as president until a successor is in place.
