Resurrecting the Jew: Nationalism, Philosemitism, and Poland’s Jewish Revival
Hosted By: Sir Martin Gilbert Learning Centre
Since the early 2000s, Poland has experienced a remarkable Jewish revival, largely driven by non-Jewish Poles with a passionate new interest in all things Jewish. Klezmer music, Jewish-style restaurants, and festivals of Jewish culture have become popular, while new museums, memorials, Jewish studies programs, and Holocaust research centres reflect soul-searching about Polish-Jewish relations before, during, and after the Holocaust. In Resurrecting the Jew, Geneviève Zubrzycki examines this revival and asks what it means to try to bring Jewish culture back to life in a country where 3 million Jews were murdered and where only about 10,000 Jews now live.
