Subotic Wins Another 2020 Book Award

Posted On July 25, 2020

Dr. Jelena Subotic, Professor of Political Science, has been awarded the 2020 Jervis-Schroeder Award in International History and Politics. Her book, Yellow Star, Red Star: Holocaust Remembrance after Communism, is the co-winner of the prize presented by the American Political Science Association (APSA).

This is the third award for Dr. Subotic’s book following the 2020 Joseph Rothschild Prize in Nationalism and Ethnic Studies and APSA’s 2020 Best Book Award in European Politics and Society. The book explains how Eastern European countries after the collapse of communism pursued new strategies of Holocaust remembrance where the memory, symbols, and imagery of the Holocaust became appropriated to represent the crimes of communism. The book was published last year by Cornell University Press.
