Polish-Jewish Re-Remembering

The title of this monograph, Odpamiętywanie polsko-żydowskie [‘Polish-Jewish Re-Remembering’], refers to the post-1989, thirty-year-long process of reviving attention to Polish-Jewish relations in historical, cultural, and literary studies, including the impact of Polish Jews on the development of Polish culture, their presence in Polish social life, and the relationships between Jewish and non-Jewish Poles. That process had been preceded by a long period of silence that fell on the centuries-old presence of Jews in the Polish Commonwealth after their extermination by the Nazis. Jewish studies in the years 1945–1989, concerning both the very presence of Jews and their annihilation in the Holocaust, were very limited: the Communist authorities were interested in neither. As a result, the majority of Poles mentally operate with the Jewish world from before the World War II and with the Shoah as mere artefacts of the cultural processes of post-memory.

Essays Commemorating Szmul Zygielbojm

Author/Editor: Michael Fleming

This book brings together papers that were presented at a workshop in May 2018 to commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of Szmul Zygielbojm’s protest suicide. The workshop was organised at The Polish University Abroad within the framework of an ongoing seminar series on twentieth century Polish history.5 The volume opens with a message from Zygielbojm’s grandsons, Dr Arthur I. Zygielbaum and Paul S. Zygielbaum, to participants of the workshop (see p. 11), in which they highlight the continuing relevance of their grandfather’s sacrifice (Michael Fleming, Introduction).
