Omer BartovOmer Bartov (Hebrew: עֹמֶר בַּרְטוֹב; pronounced [[Help:IPA for Hebrew|[ʕ
The son of Israel Prize-winning author Hanoch Bartov, Bartov was born in Israel and attended Tel Aviv University and St. Antony's College, Oxford. As a historian, Bartov is most noted for his studies of the German Army in World War II. Bartov has challenged the popular view that the German Army was an apolitical force that had little involvement in war crimes or crimes against humanity in World War II. Bartov has argued that the Wehrmacht was a deeply Nazi institution that played a key role in the Holocaust in the occupied areas of the Soviet Union.
Bartov, a 1989 to 1992 Junior Harvard fellow and 2002 Guggenheim fellow, is one of the world's leading authorities on the subject of genocide. ''The Forward'' calls Bartov "one of the foremost scholars of Jewish life in Galicia". Provided by Wikipedia
