For her research on refugees who fled during the Second World War from the Netherlands to the Caribbean, Rosa will spend eight months from January 2022 onwards in the archives at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, located in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC. Here she will consult the collection of interviews of survivors of the Second World War.
