Dr. Michael Grodin, who’s spent the past 33 years studying the Holocaust and other atrocities, stumbled on an unusual bit of history during a trip to Israel in the summer of 2009. The discovery was a museum exhibit featuring a literary magazine called Kamarad – produced by the boys confined by the Nazis in Building Q609 in a Jewish ghetto/camp in the former Czechoslovakia from 1943 to 1944. The magazine issues, created without adult supervision or censorship, were filled with stories about wilderness adventures, pranks, and soccer matches. The boys, ages 12 to 14, patched together the magazines from scraps of paper. All 22 editions, rendered in neat penmanship, have survived.
Michael Grodin, professor of health law, bioethics and human rights at BU School of Public Health, was recently awarded the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Diversity Council Justice Award in recognition of his "dedication to peace, justice, public health and human rights." The Diversity Council is an advisory body of MDPH that advances diversity within the organization and promotes awareness of issues related to health equity.
