Magdalena Kubow earned her PhD (History) from the University of Western Ontario. Her current project involves developing a PhD dissertation, titled “Contemporary Reactions to War and the Holocaust with a Focus on The Role of the Polish-Language Press in North America from 1926-1945,” into a monograph.

She is pursuing original research on the topic of the Polish-American press and its handling of Polish-Jewish relations, and, the Holocaust. These sources, which have not yet been comprehensively explored, shed light on how Poles and Polish-Americans viewed and understood the evolution of genocide during the Second World War.
