W. Jake Newsome

Dr. Jake Newsome is the Campus Outreach Program Officer at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, where he is responsible for developing the Museum’s enhanced, strategic outreach program for institutions of higher education throughout the United States. These programs take the lessons of the Holocaust beyond the Museum’s walls and inspire new generations of scholars, students, and leaders to engage with the history and contemporary relevance of the Holocaust. Dr. Newsome earned his Ph.D. in History at the State University of New York at Buffalo in 2016. His research focuses on Holocaust history, gender and sexuality, and memory studies. His current book project, Pink Triangle Legacies: Holocaust Memory and Modern Gay Identity, explores how various actors in the Federal Republic of Germany and the United States of America transformed collective memories of the Nazis’ persecution of gays and lesbians into transnational discourses that shaped contemporary understandings of sexual identity, human rights, and citizenship in modern democratic societies.
