Good Fortune, Good Friends

  • Richard J. Golsan
Part of the The Holocaust and its Contexts book series (HOLC)


Born in 1952 in the American south, Richard Golsan’s interest in Vichy and the Holocaust was inspired by childhood experiences in southern France as well as growing up in the United States in a time of political and social turmoil marked by the civil rights movement, the assassination of John Kennedy, and the Vietnam War. His ego-history shows how his path and success as a scholar of Vichy and of its political and cultural legacies were facilitated by mentors and colleagues in France and the United States whose work inspired him and whose generosity enabled his research.
