"We Got the Water"

In We Got the Water, Jill Klein writes the Holocaust history of her father and his two sisters. As she charts her personal quest to reconstruct the past, the book also documents the inexorable disappearance of living Holocaust survivors, whose first-person accounts illuminate this dark period and inscribe it in our collective memory. Jill received her Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of Michigan in 1990. During the following seven years she was a member of faculty at Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University, and spent periods as a Visiting Professor at The Fuqua School of Business, Duke University, and Helsinki School of Economics and Business Administration, Finland. From 1997 through 2008 she was on the faculty at INSEAD, including four years on the INSEAD-Asia campus in Singapore. In 2009 she joined Melbourne Business School. Jill's teaching specialties are Resilience, Decision-Making and Managerial Judgment. She has taught senior executives and MBA students around the world. Her research interests are gift-giving and sharing in impoverished contexts, consumer boycotts, and corporate social responsibility. She has had articles published in the Harvard Business Review, Sloan Management Review, Journal of Marketing, Management Science, Journal of International Business Studies, and the British Medical Journal.
