Battles Over the Holocaust: Polish-Jewish Memory Wars, Featuring Dr. Zachary Mazur 

Monday, May 6 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

In the aftermath of World War II, Jews and Poles formulated separate histories and memories of their wartime experiences. While Poles claimed that Polish Catholics and Jews suffered equally, in the Jewish narrative, Polish antisemitism and indifference were instrumental in making the Holocaust possible. Actions and reactions from both sides have made for a particularly volatile environment. Despite the dangers, attempts at reconciliation have been made and continue today. This talk will uncover how we have gotten to this point and where we can go from here to resolve one of the thorniest issues in memory politics. Join us for a timely, thought-provoking presentation and discussion.

Fee: Complimentary for all.
