Spring@IIJS: In Dialogue: Jewish Polish Relations during The Second World War, Part III

On February 21, over 215 people joined us for a conversation on Polish-Jewish relations during WWII. This lecture was part of series of four events, jointly organized by the Jewish Studies Program at Fordham University, the Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies at Columbia University, and the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, meant to explore the complex history of Poland, with its shifting borders, focusing in on a shared, but much misunderstood, past of Polish Jews and Christians. The fourth and final event will take place on Sunday, May 5 at YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. More details here.
