Naama Seri-Levi is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History  of  the  Jewish  People  and  Contemporary Jewry at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. Was a fellow  of  the  Mandel  School  for Advanced  Studies in  the  Humanities and held the Presidential Stipend for the years 2016-2020, both at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. Lives in Jerusalem, married to Ariel and a mother of Hillel-Moshe, Ivri-Pinchas and Elisha-Shalom.

Her research deals with the Polish-Jewish refugees who fled to the Soviet Union during World War II and the Holocaust. By tracing after the networks those people held during the years of the war, the research discovers some aspects of that unique experience. The study will highlight the daily lives of these refugees as well as their hopes and expectations for the future. It will also examine how other Jewish communities sought to learn about the fate of the refugees and those left behind in Poland, and to respond to their plight, both at the personal and institutional levels.
