Yvonne "Weisgrab" Penkavova
Yvonne, an accomplished graduate in Hebrew studies from the Department of Middle Eastern Studies, is currently immersed in her Master's program in Political Science at Charles University. Her research is dedicated to the exploration of modern Jewish history and the evolving Jewish identity within the Czech lands before the onset of World War II. Beyond academia, Yvonne's influence extends to social media, where she actively engages and nurtures a meaningful connection between Jewish youth and their rich historical heritage. Intriguingly, she employs her ancestral family name, Weisgrab, as a pseudonym, cleverly intertwining her personal journey with her family's historical roots.
