Anika Walke's doctoral dissertation, entitled "The Jewish Struggle for Survival in the German-Occupied USSR: Oral Histories of Resistance, Memories of Youth," explores the war-time experiences of now-aging Russian Holocaust survivors and their subsequent lives in post-war Soviet society. Walke's research incorporates oral histories as well as archival research. Her work has already been published in numerous articles and in a 2007 book based on the lives of eight Jewish women she interviewed in Russia and Belorussia. Walke was a Research Fellow at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2010, and she has been awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship in International and Area Studies at Washington University (St. Louis) starting in August.
