Olga Gershenson Olga Gershenson is Professor of Judaic and Near Eastern Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She got her BA in Russia, her MA in Israel, and her PhD in the US. Her personal geography parallels her academic path tracking Russian-Jewish culture at home and abroad. For years she followed Russian immigrant cultural production in Israel: she published Gesher: Russian Theater in Israel (2005) about a unique bilingual theater in Tel Aviv, and a series of articles about Russian-Israeli cinema. Then she detoured into studying gender and power relations, and published a collection Ladies and Gents: Public Toilets and Gender (2009). Back on her Russian-Jewish track, she has recently published a book about the unknown, forgotten, or banned Holocaust films in the Soviet Union, The Phantom Holocaust: Soviet Cinema and Jewish Catastrophe (2013). Olga Gershenson teaches courses on Jewish cultural studies, such as Cinema of the Holocaust or Israeli and Palestinian Popular Cultures. She has a lively lecture schedule at universities, film festivals, and other cultural events. To learn more about her work, see
