Polish Jewish Relations during the Interwar Period
November 15, 2018 , 6:00 pm
In 1918, after over 120 years under the rule of Austria, Prussia, and Russia, Poland returned on the European map. Its return came amidst discussions about the new Poland’s national identity and the place ethnic groups now played in Polish society. Samuel Kassow (Trinity College) and Paul Brykczyński (University of Michigan) will discuss Polish and Jewish society and culture, contested questions about Polish Jewish relations of this period, the cultural, political, and ideological transformations, including nationalism and antisemitism in the aftermath of World War I, and the eve of World War II.
Co-presented by Fordham University, Columbia University, and the YIVO Institute.
