Congratulations to Paul Bartrop, Ph.D., our 60th honoree in the FGCU Author Series of recently published books authored or edited by FGCU faculty and staff. Dr. Bartrop’s book The Evian Conference of 1938 and the Jewish Refugee Crisis will be featured on the Library website during December 2018 and displayed on a poster on the first floor of Library West in the FGCU Authors and New Books area.
Dr. Bartrop has been at FGCU since 2012 and serves as both Professor of History and the Director of the Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Genocide Studies. He is the author and/or editor of 19 books on historical topics, primarily focusing on genocide and the Holocaust. His 4-volume encyclopedia The Holocaust: A Resource and Document Collection won the Society for Military History Distinguished Book Award for 2018, and the Association of Jewish Libraries Judaica Reference Award for 2017, as well as other accolades. Two other publications, Modern Genocide: The Definitive Resource and Document Collection (4 volumes) and A Biographical Encyclopedia of Contemporary Genocide: Portraits of Evil and Good, were recognized as Outstanding Academic Titles by Choice in 2013 and 2016 respectively. Dr. Bartrop also contributes articles and chapters to other edited works and has presented at numerous national and international conferences as a renowned historian and scholar of the Holocaust and genocide.
