Exploring Polish/Jewish History and Relations

Hosted By: Congregation Rodeph Sholom

Polish/Jewish history spans over a thousand years of complex relations, mutual codependence, and growth, as well as prejudice, antisemitism, discrimination, and stereotyping. At the same time, the last 20 years have been a period of growing awareness and discussion about Jewish history in Poland and of commemorating it. Come and learn from Olga Kaczmarek, Director General at Forum for Dialogue, how Polish/Jewish history informs how we teach, remember, and keep alive the Jewish history and heritage in Poland.
