In this presentation, I briefly provide a broad overview of the work I did in my paper for the History Capstone Class. In this paper, I discuss global Jewish history with respect to migration and identity formation. I focus within the 20th Century to look at Serbia, Poland, Ukraine, and the wider USSR as cases to explore the formation of Jewish identity. In each case, I discuss how global connections, either personal or institutionalized, between Jewish diasporas influenced migration and thus how one forms identity. The presentation will outline the work I have done and provide an overview of important concepts and cases that I am working with.
