Daniel Lee is a historian of the Second World War and a specialist in the history of Jews in France and North Africa during the Holocaust. He taught at Queen Mary, University of London. Lee’s first book, Pétain’s Jewish Children, examined the experiences of Jewish youth under the Vichy regime. His second book, The SS Officer’s Armchair, to be published next year, reconsiders daily life under the Swastika by exploring the life of a low-ranking SS officer whose personal papers were recently discovered concealed within an armchair. Lee also heads a team of researchers that examines how contemporary Tunisians remember the country’s Jewish past.
