Dr. Kamil Kijek's talk, "Beyond Bricha. Jewish history of post-Holocaust Polish Western Territories (1945-1950): Why does it matter and how can it be integrated into global post-war Jewish history?".

The Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism and Racism, the Inter-University Partnership in Russian and East European Studies and the Institute for the History of Polish Jewry and Israel-Poland Relations are happy to invite you to Dr. Kamil Kijek's talk, "Beyond Bricha. Jewish history of post-Holocaust Polish Western Territories (1945-1950): Why does it matter and how can it be integrated into global post-war Jewish history?".

05 April 2021
The presentation will discuss the main political, cultural and social phenomena characterizing the history of the Polish Jewish community in Lower Silesia and West Pomerania (territories of western Poland recently taken over from Germany) in the first five years after the Holocaust, when more than half of Polish Jews who survived the Holocaust lived in this area. The goal of the talk will be to show how various problems related to the history of this community may be researched and discussed beyond the paradigm of 'Holocaust Aftermath', in a transnational context that enables to integrate post-1945 Polish Jewish history with histories of the centers of post-war Jewish world, Israel and United States.
 
 
It will take place on Sunday, 11 of April, 18 Israel time, 11 EST
