  • Hasia Diner is an American historian. Diner is the Paul S. and Sylvia Steinberg Professor of American Jewish History; Professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies, History; and Director of the Goldstein-Goren Center for American Jewish History at New York University. Diner received her Ph.D., 1976, University of Illinois at Chicago, M.A., 1970, University of Chicago, and B.A., 1968, University of Wisconsin. In 2002 she and Beryl Benderly published Her Works Praise Her: A History Of Jewish Women In America From Colonial Times To The Present. In 2009 she published We Remember With Reverence and Love: American Jews and the Myth of Silence after the Holocaust, 1945-1962. According to Adam Kirsch, the book "drive a stake, once and for all, through the heart of a historical falsehood that has proved remarkably durable. This is the notion that, as Diner’s subtitle has it, American Jews were initially “silent” about the Holocaust—that the greatest catastrophe in Jewish history was somehow swept under the rug of American Jewry’s collective consciousness."
