Admin History/Bio
Michael Marrus (b. 3 February 1941) is a Canadian historian of France, the Holocaust, and Jewish history. He was born in Toronto and received his BA at the University of Toronto in 1963 and his MA and PhD at the University of California, Berkeley in 1964 and 1968. He is a professor emeritus of Holocaust studies at the University of Toronto. Marrus married Randi Greenstein in 1971 and has three children.
Marrus is an expert on the history of French Jewry and antisemitism. He co-wrote with Robert Paxton a book on Vichy France that shows that the antisemitism of Vichy was not imposed by the Germans, that at times Vichy was more brutal towards the French Jews than the Germans, and that the French state played a leading and indispensable role in organizing the deportation of Jews to death camps. Furthermore, Marrus and Paxton argued that Vichy was more brutal than other European states occupied by the Germans.
Marrus was appointed to the Order of Canada in 2008.
Scope and Content
The item is a portrait of a two year-old boy seated on a ledge with a toy in his hand, while facing the camera.
