Terrell remembers literary scholar Ruth Klüger in Syracuse.com

Robert TerrellWriter and literary scholar Ruth Klüger died October 5, 2020, at age 88. Her memoir "Still Alive: A Holocaust Girlhood Remembered" recounts her childhood in Nazi-occupied Austria; her deportation and imprisonment in Nazi concentration camps; her postwar years in occupied Germany; and eventual journey to America. Robert Terrell, assistant professor of history, reflects on her life and enduring legacy, particularly in the present moment of radicalization, protest and multifaceted conversations about inequality. "She reminds us that making a more humane and tolerant world requires accountability and unmovable courage in criticism," he writes. Terrell's article, "Remembering Ruth Klüger and her case for accountability," was published by Syracuse.com. 11/11/20
